Norwich City right-back Max Aarons a ‘possible solution’ for Manchester United this summer
The 22-year-old has been someone United have had an eye on for a long time. Other top teams in the Premier League have also been credited with an interest previously. Now, it remains to be seen what the Manchester-based club will decide.
In supporters’ eyes, United’s current options for the right-back position are not up to the mark. Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka fought for a starting berth last season.
Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it was the former Crystal Palace star that got the nod into the XI. But Ralf Rangnick’s arrival changed the 24-year-old’s fortunes in Manchester, who then played second fiddle to the Portugal international.
Dalot played the majority of the season under the German manager. The 23-year-old’s performances in the attacking half of the pitch make him more palatable for United fans.
Wan-Bissaka is brilliant in defence. The 24-year-old has excellent attributes when it comes to the art of taking the ball away from opponents. But his play in the final third of the pitch lets people down.
While some fans might prefer Dalot, the Portuguese international has hardly covered himself in glory and doesn’t have the best of reputation defensively. Thus, some would say there’s a need for a quality right-back at United.
Aarons is a decent prospect. The England U21 international has come up through the youth ranks at Norwich. While the Canaries have found it challenging to stay in the PL, the 22-year-old has been one of their standout players.
