Manchester United identify £15m young star as plan B for £50m primary target

Man United interested in Norwich City star Max Aarons

Manchester United have chosen Norwich City’s Max Aarons as the alternative if they fail to sign their prime target Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to the Sun.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to see Wan-Bissaka play for the Old Trafford outfit next season, though the Red Devils find his price tag of £50m as an expensive one.

Now, United have identified Canaries youngster Aarons as an alternative for the Eagles full-back.

The 19-year-old really enjoyed a great campaign with the Yellows, eventually playing a vital role in them earning promotion to Premier League. The English U-19 international also bagged an eye-catching nine-goal tally.

Aarons is valued around £15m and has a contract with the Canaries until 2023. He is also watched by fellow Premier League clubs Arsenal and Chelsea.

Is Aarons a better choice than Wan-Bissaka?

The Canaries teenager possesses tremendous pace down the flanks with an eye for precise passes and is a good dribbler as well. Aarons was one of the breakout stars of the recently-concluded Championship campaign, bagging the EFL young player of the year award.

Although Wan-Bissaka had the same impact at Crystal Palace, his hefty price tag could complicate his move to Old Trafford.
