Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Man Utd, 2021/22

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been told he can leave Manchester United this summer, with the club willing to loan him out or sell him completely.

However, United may have to take a loss of up to £40 million to get Wan-Bissaka off their books permanently, with Crystal Palace willing to pay £10m to re-sign their former right-back.

United signed Wan-Bissaka from Palace for £50m in 2019 but new boss Erik ten Hag is unconvinced by the 24-year-old's ability going forward as a wing-back despite his quality in defence.

Wan-Bissaka has made 126 appearances in all competitions for United over the past three years but only featured in 20 Premier League games last season, with Diogo Dalot often being preferred instead.

Wan-Bissaka set to join long list of United flops

Ten Hag had identified a right-back as one of his priority positions to upgrade and had lined up Denzel Dumfries as their top target but Inter are unwilling to sell the Dutchman.

United have also been linked with a £17m move for Barcelona's Sergino Dest, while Dortmund's Thomas Meunier is also being considered, but the club would likely need to cash in on Wan-Bissaka before being able to pursue any move.

The former England under-21 international arrived at Old Trafford with a big reputation after impressing for Palace but he has so far failed to live up to his potential.

A £40m loss for United would put Wan-Bissaka among the biggest transfer flops in the club's history, particularly considering the money needed to then sign a replacement.

United are rock bottom of the Premier League after losing their two opening games and have conceded the joint-most goals of any team.

The club are preparing for a busy end to the transfer window as they look to strengthen their attack and midfield, as well as monitoring the future of want-away forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
