The Man To Replace Ashley Young? Manchester United Must Sign This Premier League Star In The Summer

Aaron Wan Bissaka Has Been Excellent For Crystal Palace And Would Be The Perfect Signing For Manchester United
Aaron Wan Bissaka Has Been Excellent For Crystal Palace And Would Be The Perfect Signing For Manchester United

The feeling at Man United right now is a pretty positive one in 2019 with results on an upward curve and the ghost of Jose Mourinho fading into a distant memory.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned the club around in just a short few weeks but there are still glaring problems with the squad, including at right-back. Ashley Young has done an admirable job filling in there over the past few months but the Old Trafford club cannot let another window pass by without fixing the issue.

Diogo Dalot has shown glimpses of form but remains a young player that needs time to progress in England and that means there is a burning need to look elsewhere in the summer.

There is one obvious candidate starring United in the face and that is the brilliant Aaron Wan-Bissaka who has been nothing short of sensational over the past six months for Crystal Palace. The 21-year-old has been a revelation for Roy Hodgson with his quality going forward matched by his defensive diligence and he clearly has a massive future.

Man City have already been linked with a big money move for the player in recent days but United must act quickly if they are to challenge their rivals at the top of the Premier League table.

For too long now, the red half of the city have been lagging behind when it comes to grabbing the best young talent in the game and it is time they started to turn that tide back the other way.

Wan-Bissaka has the word at his feet and will surely leave Selhurst Park in the summer, but the big question is where will he end up. United must not allow their cross city rivals to strengthen any further, especially with the young full-back exactly the player they need to fill a gaping hole in their lop-sided squad

If Manchester United are serious about returning to the top of the tree in England, then these are the deals that need to be done, at almost any cost. Full-backs are more important than ever in the modern Premier League and if Wan-Bissaka is strutting his stuff at Old Trafford next season, the club will be continuing to move in the right direction.
