Revealed: Why Manchester United changed January transfer plans

Manchester United made a change to their transfer policy this winter.

Manchester United went into this January’s transfer window targeting a right-back, but changed their minds due to the strong form of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Manchester United’s no.1 right-back this season has been Diogo Dalot.

The Portuguese has impressed under Erik ten Hag and can currently stake a claim for the best right-back in the Premier League.

His back-up, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, is still at Old Trafford, but it did look as though he had fallen out of favour and was set to leave the club in January.

However, following the Premier League’s return, Wan-Bissaka has stepped up an impressed in a number of games for United as they continue to fight for a top-four finish.

Now, Fabrizio Romano has claimed that United changed their plans to sign a right-back in January after Wan-Bissaka’s resurgence:

“Manchester United were considering signing a new right-back this January, but then they decided to continue with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, this was one of the possible changes,” Romano said.

“Ten Hag is also keeping an eye on midfielders for present and future but as he said, on the budget side it’s not up to him.”
