Manchester United: 3 reasons why Aaron Wan-Bissaka should be a top transfer target for the Red Devils
Manchester United recently confirmed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their permanent manager. The internet has flooded with reports that Manchester United are planning an exodus in the summer and almost 6 players could be sold in order to make room for new players. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to add young, hungry, players to turn Manchester United into title challengers next season.
Manchester United lack personnel and quality in some areas of the pitch and one such position is right-back. Antonio Valencia is going to leave in the summer when his contract expires and Ashley Young is on the wrong side of 30.
United did buy Diego Dalot last summer and the 20-year old has shown glimpses of his talent, but Manchester United need a ready-made player who is capable of playing every week.
One name that has emerged in recent reports is Crystal Palace's right-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The 20-year old is loving life in the Premier League this season. The youngster is lightning quick and is a robust tackler of the ball.
Wan Bissaka has earned a lot of reputation with his performances this season, and many of the top clubs are keeping an eye on the youngster. If Manchester United really wants to challenge for the title next season, Aaron Wan-Bissaka should be their top transfer target and need to do everything in their power to lure the full-back to Old Trafford.
Here are 3 reasons why.
#3 Bring balance to United's right side
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer likes his full-back to be dynamic and contribute to both attack and defence. Manchester United has been overly reliant on the left side for building attacks, with Luke Shaw contributing more than Ashley Young in the attacking third.
The Englishman is not defensively sound and has to stay back in order to prevent leaving spaces in behind. This is where Aaron Wan-Bissaka steps in. The full-back is defensively solid and is more than capable of moving forward and contributing in the attacking third. He will bring balance to United's right side, both in attack and defence.
#2 Accustomed to the pace of the Premier League
Many young, talented players have come to the Premier League and have failed miserably as they couldn't adapt to the pace and physicality of the Premier League. But that won't be an issue in the case of Wan-Bissaka.
The England U-21 international came through the ranks at Crystal Palace and has already proven himself more than capable of playing in the Premier League with his performances this season. It will be a no-brainer for Manchester United to go all-in for Aaron Wan-Bissaka rather than looking for a full-back in another league.
