Incoming Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has already run the rule over Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s abilities ahead of taking his place on the bench at Old Trafford, according to reports.
And the Dutchman’s verdict, it would appear, spells altogether bad news for the Red Devils’ oft-criticised right-back.
This comes amid the suggestion that ten Hag has come to the decision that Wan-Bissaka is not of the level required to play a regular role in his project in Manchester.
As per a report from Sky Sports, the transfer team at the Theatre of Dreams are ready to invite offers for their English defender come the summer, owing to the fact that he ‘does not feature’ in the plans of the club’s incoming tactician.
It remains unclear what kind of fee is likely to be demanded for AWB’s services, though it is understood that United would rather any such deal come in the form of a permanent one, rather than a loan.

Turning attentions towards potential defensive reinforcements on the red half of Manchester this summer, an insight has too been provided into a prime target on the part of ten Hag over the weeks and months ahead.
Recent weeks have of course seen Ajax talent Jurrien Timber hotly tipped to follow his manager to England come the summer, as ten Hag sets his sights on fresh blood at the heart of the Red Devils’ backline.
According to The Telegraph, though, the Dutchman is equally keen on teammate Lisandro Martinez, who too played a starring role in guiding Ajax to the club’s latest Eredivisie title this season.
