Manchester United have targeted Norwich City player Max Aarons as they are aiming to bring in a right-back very soon.
As per a report in Football Insider, Manchester United are planning to intensify their search for a right-back and have identified Norwich’s Max Aarons as their next target.
Manchester United have prioritised a right-sided defender for quite a long time as they want to introduce some serious competition for Diogo Dalot, who has set himself as the preferred choice on the right side of the defence.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has not played much and is currently recuperating from an injury. Manchester United have been looking for a potential suitor for him. And should they get an opportunity in January they will offload Wan-Bissaka to the buyer.
“We need two good full-backs [on the left and the right] because we have a lot of games to come.”
Manchester United have a long-standing interest in Aarons, and despite his tender age, the 22-year-old is vastly experienced. The Canaries are currently plying their trade in the Championship, and the lure of getting regular Premier League football would be too hard to reject for the youngster.
Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong has also emerged as a target for Manchester United. But Aarons would be a much cheaper and more stable option for the Red Devils. The Norwich academy product has not left the club since bursting onto the first-team scene in 2018 but has attracted a lot of suitors over the years.
The Red Devils have undergone a huge transformation and are expected to line up a number of new entrants as they are bidding to climb up the table.
A bid in the region of £15 million should be enough to tempt Norwich into selling their most talented product in the winter transfer window. The Canaries are currently fifth in the Championship table. And should they feel they have an outright chance of promotion to the top flight, it would be pretty hard for Manchester United to convince them.
