Fabrizio Romano provides update on Wolves target Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United are ‘trying to find a solution’ to let Aaron Wan-Bissaka leave the club, amid speculation Wolves are interested in the defender.

The 25-year-old was linked with a move to Molineux last week, with Julen Lopetegui seemingly ready to strengthen at right-back.

Wan-Bissaka is not in favour at all with Erik ten Hag, and has played just four minutes of football for the Red Devils this season.

His £50 million move to Old Trafford has been a disaster by and large, and it is highly likely he’ll leave next month.

United will have to take a hit on the player if they are selling.

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, United are now trying to facilitate his exit. He says that Wolves are keen, but that there is also interest from West Ham United and his former club Crystal Palace.

It is still not clear what kind of deal Wolves would like to do. That said, the Express & Star stated last week that United could be open to a loan deal with a view to a permanent transfer.

Wan-Bissaka hasn’t been in form or favour for some time now.

So a loan move with an option to buy would arguably be the best scenario for Wolves.

If this deal came to fruition, it could mean one of Nelson Semedo or Jonny Castro Otto leaving next month.

Johnny Phillips reported that Wanderers could offload Semedo if the terms were right.

So United are now actively trying to facilitate Wan-Bissaka’s exit from the club.

That could mean there is movement on this soon for Wolves.

It doesn’t appear that there is a way back for him at Old Trafford under ten Hag.

Wan-Bissaka’s move to United has been a real failure, but that does not make him a bad player. He did not choose his price tag, and it has seemingly weighed heavily on him.

He was fantastic at Palace, and he could potentially be a good addition for Wolves as he’d likely get to do more of what he’s good at, which is defending.
