Man United to turn to Barcelona star in case of Wan-Bissaka departure

The out-of-favour defender’s departure does not appear to have been ruled out just yet

An insight into the potential path set to be taken by Premier League giants Manchester United in the case of Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s sale has been provided on Tuesday.

Right-back Wan-Bissaka, of course, has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford over the early weeks of the new season.

This comes with new boss Erik ten Hag having made clear his preference for the talents of Portuguese international Diogo Dalot.

Across the Red Devils’ first four league outings of the campaign, Dalot has been afforded a starting role in each, allowing one-time big-money arrival Wan-Bissaka to rack up a paltry four minutes of playing time.

In turn, whispers had begun to spread over the course of recent days that the ex-Crystal Palace man could be on the move ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Such claims appeared to have been definitively shut down on Monday, though, when it was revealed that the powers that be at Old Trafford had rejected approaches from a pair of Premier League rivals for AWB.

But, if the latest word stemming from the media this evening is anything to go by, then another twist could yet be in the tale.

This comes amid confirmation that United have identified a potential replacement, in the case of Wan-Bissaka’s exit.

The player in question? Sergino Dest.

As per the reliable Jonathan Shrager, ‘there is a possibility’ that the Red Devils will swoop for United States international Dest - yet to make an appearance for Barcelona this season - over the coming 48 hours.
