Manchester United’s £50 Million man, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, has been left unhappy with the club’s handling of his transfer situation. Wan-Bissaka was looking for a move away from Old Trafford this summer after being dropped from the side for Diogo Dalot by new manager Erik ten Hag. His representation believed the club should have allowed him to explore a late loan on deadline day, according to Jonathan Shrager.
Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka Unhappy with Transfer Saga
Erik ten Hag Says He Still Has a Chance to Impress
Jonathan Shrager has tweeted, “Those around Wan-Bissaka have been concerned Aaron’s being kept at Manchester United just in case Dalot gets injured. His representation have been trying to facilitate a move for weeks, but the club has refused various offers, maintaining throughout that he isn’t for sale or loan.” Manchester United had been interested in potential right back replacements, such as Sergino Dest.
However, with Sergino Dest now in Italy to complete his move to AC Milan, Manchester United are adamant that Wan-Bissaka will be staying at Old Trafford to ensure adequate cover in the right back area. Erik ten Hag has spoken directly to Aaron, ensuring that he still has a chance to impress at Manchester United. The Englishman will not feature against Leicester but will be back in training before the visit of Arsenal on Sunday.
Erik ten Hag on Aaron Wan-Bissaka:
“Of course, Aaron wan Bissaka will stay in this squad. We will play with this squad this season”.
Safe to say that rules out the reports of a potential loan.

Wan-Bissaka’s Manchester United Career: From Hero to Zero
Once likened to and nicknamed ‘The Spider’ due to his ability to win every tackle, Wan-Bissaka’s United career has taken a downturn in the past 12 to 18 months. Signed for £50 million in 2019 from Crystal Palace, the right back enjoyed his early time at Manchester United, being defensively brilliant against the league’s best wingers. His battles with Raheem Sterling in the Manchester Derby come to mind when evaluating his best games for the club.
His main weakness that he has been scrutinised for is his attacking ability. He has only registered 14 career assists in 173 games, which when compared to Trent Alexander Arnold’s 66 in 251 or Reece James’ 36 in 252 is quite poor for the modern day fullback. Erik ten Hag seems to pick Diogo Dalot more often due to his attacking ability.
