Manchester United oversaw the transfer of Norwich star Max Aarons ahead of the January transfer window. This comes just months after Arsenal and Tottenham failed to reach the English player. Barcelona was also interested in the defender.
United are desperate to strengthen their defense, especially in the center back and right back.
Despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being a big fan of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, there isn’t much competition at center – as there is in left-back.
Luke Shaw and Alex Telles, on the other hand, are competing for a spot in the starting line-up.
But Wan-Bissaka has only the likes of Brandon Williams and Tim Fuso-Minsah competing with him and Solskjaer is looking for more quality in his squad.
This comes after a last-minute victory against Wolverhampton in the English Premier League, which suddenly turned the Red Devils into contenders for the title.
United finished second after Marcus Rashford scored in the fourth minute of extra time against Nuno Espírito Santo’s men, two points behind Liverpool.
Old Trafford bosses want to maintain momentum by splashing money into the January transfer window.
Norwich star Aarons is the first goal pursued by Tottenham and Arsenal in the summer.
However, both Londoners failed to raise the asking price for the Canary family, while Barcelona has also been linked to the 20-year-old.
The England U-21 team has been promoted for stardom with some great performances that initially helped Norwich climb to the Premier League.
Despite their relegation, he remained at Carrow Road and continued to star in the championship.
Arsenal ended up clinging to Hector Bellerin, but he can look at Aarons again with Mikel Arteta happy to let the Spaniard go to Barcelona.
While at Tottenham, Jose Mourinho may revisit a move for the Norwich superstar as Serge Aurier proves to be a handicap at times while the summer signature Matt Doherty fails to shine as the Special One had hoped.
But United are the favorites to sign after seeing the defender on several occasions during the season.
