The chances of West Ham signing Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka have received a boost according to reports today.
The former Crystal Palace right back was believed to be David Moyes primary target during the January transfer window. However, a defensive crisis at the Manchester club created an opening in Erik ten Hag’s team, and Wan-Bissaka found himself back in favour.
Negotiations between The Hammers and The Red Devils were put on hold, and as a result Moyes decided to stick with Vladimir Coufal. The Czech star and been expected to join German club Bayer Leverkusen, but has instead remained at The London Stadium.
It now seems that Manchester United may be ready to reignite the deal following productive talks with Real Valladolid for defender Ivan Fresneda.
Fresneda was on Arsenal’s radar during the winter transfer window after being identified an outstanding young full-back. He has been making a name for himself in Spain thanks to his performances in La Liga.
Whilst Wan-Bissaka has performed admirably at old Trafford during the past two months, it is understood the Manchester United manager has reservations about his attacking ability.
Well that’s all very well but it’s a bit late now, isn’t it? We needed Wan-Bissaka before the January window closed so all this talk is rather obsolete in my opinion. If we get relegated I’m pretty sure there would be no further discussion.
