At the moment, Laird is serving his fourth loan from Manchester United. The 21-year-old plays regularly for Championship team QPR right now, but Manchester United may think about reintegrating him into the first team sooner than anticipated.
According to a report from the Manchester Evening News, United is considering calling back Laird from his current loan in order to give him a spot in the starting lineup. According to the report, they would only consider recalling Laird if they were successful in offloading Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Laird has performed well while on loan, and now that Wan Bissaka is finding it difficult to beat out Diogo Dalot for a starting position, it might be time for Laird to advance.
Wan-transfer Bissaka’s seems like the right choice for all parties involved, but there may be questions about his readiness for the Premier League. It might be wise to sign a more ready-made right-back to compete with Dalot, allowing Laird to continue his development somewhere else.
