West Ham United and Crystal Palace both made bids for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, but Manchester United turned them down.
The Athletic says that the two Premier League clubs wanted to hire the 24-year-old player, but United wouldn’t let them.
The Red Devils don’t want to sell or loan out Wan-Bissaka during this transfer window because Diogo Dalot is the only right-back available to Erik ten Hag.
He will only be able to leave if someone else comes in to take his place, which seems hard to do as the transfer deadline nears.
If Aaron Wan-Bissaka leaves, someone must take his place.
Wan-Bissaka joined Manchester United three years ago for a total of £45 million plus an extra £5 million.
He is almost certainly one of the best defenders in the league when it comes to one-on-one situations.
He was supposed to start under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but the new manager has put Dalot on the team.
The Portuguese defender is much more dangerous in the other team’s half of the field.
Ten Hag wants his fullbacks to be aggressive, which is not one of Wan-strengths. Bissaka’s
He has only come off the bench once for United this season.
It’s not smart to only have one right-back for the whole season.
If Ten Hag’s right-back got hurt or was suspended, he would have to find a replacement.
If the Red Devils can find a good replacement for Dalot in the last few days of the transfer window, Wan-Bissaka should be let go.
If he doesn’t, United needs to keep him.
