Wan-Bissaka is not expected to be in ten Hag’s plans

Erik ten Hag will allow Aaron Wan-Bissaka to leave Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

The full-back is not expected to be among ten Hag’s plans, and, in one of his first major decisions, the new Red Devils coach is reportedly looking to move him on.

Wan-Bissaka joined Man United from Crystal Palace for £50m in 2019 but has lost his starting place under soon to be departing interim coach Ralf Rangnick.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: Man United will allow the defender to leave

According to Sky Sports, once again looking to rebuild, United are prepared to listen to offers for the defender this summer.

The club would prefer to sell him on a permanent deal, but would also consider a loan deal with an obligation to buy him permanently.

Wan-Bissaka, 24, has played 126 times for Man United over the last three seasons and was a regular at right-back under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The defender, however, has struggled for playing time since Solskjær was sacked last November. He has started just seven Premier League games under interim manager Rangnick, who is set to take on the Austrian national team job amid his remaining sporting director role.

While Wan-Bisska is strong in defensive one-v-one scenarios, his attacking output has been questioned. The defender has registered just 10 assists for Man United across the last three seasons.

Diogo Dalot has been first-choice right-back under Rangnick, but it remains to be seen if ten Hag wants to sign a new full-back.

Erik ten Hag’s transfer plans for Man United

Wan-Bissaka likely won’t be the only face leaving the club this summer as well, with the likes of Lingard, Jones, Cavani, Pogba, Mata and many others expected to make exit.

Fabrizio Romano also tweeted that his sources have informed that Eric Bailly could be allowed to leave alongside the right-back after injury struggles and limited game time.

Furthermore, Newcastle United are in talks with Man United about a move for goalkeeper Dean Henderson, according to Manchester Evening News.

Henderson is expected to join the Magpies on loan, but a permanent deal hasn’t been ruled out. The England goalkeeper, 25, has been backup to David de Gea at Old Trafford and wants to play first-team football.

ten Hag is already planning for next season after finishing up early with Ajax. The Dutch coach is expected to attend Man United’s match away to Crystal Palace on the last day of the Premier League season on Sunday.
