Wolves plot January move for Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka who’s played just FOUR minutes for Erik ten Hag
Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to sign Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka in January, talkSPORT understands.
United are open to offers for a player they spent a whopping £50m on in 2019 but plan to source a replacement first.
The Manchester giants paid the fee to Crystal Palace after Wan-Bissaka came on stage for club and country, but in recent form his minutes have drastically reduced.
The 25-year-old right-back has only played four competitive minutes for Erik ten Hag in all competitions this season and was similarly suspicious of his predecessor Ralf Rangnick.
Complicating matters for Wan-Bissaka was the reliability and performance of fellow right-back Diogo Dalot, while the club were closely linked with Bayer Leverkusen and Dutch full-back Jeremie Frimpong.
Wan-Bissaka developed into a fighting and defensive talent at Selhurst Park in his breakthrough 2018/19 season and continued on that form after being signed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The defender was soon called up in Gareth Southgate’s England squad in 2019, although he never played due to a back injury.
A lack of form and stiff competition down the right flank from the likes of Kyle Walker, Reece James and Trent Alexander-Arnold see Wan Bissaka’s chances for England dwindle, leading to speculation he could move to the DRC.

The Croydon-born defender has also been regularly linked with an Old Trafford exit, with Wolves now looking to pounce.
The Midlands side have been uncharacteristically defensively permeable this season, with their 24 goals conceded contributing to the Premier League’s second-worst goal difference record of -16.
Worse, Wolves are bottom with just two wins from 15 games and recently appointed manager Julen Lopetegui appears to be strengthening in the winter window.
