Wolves have recently been linked with a move for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, but comments from Erik ten Hag last night about his future suggest a deal could now be difficult.
The full-back was in action for Manchester United against Burnley in the Carabao Cup.
The Red Devils ran out 2-0 winners at Old Trafford against the Championship side.
And Wan-Bissaka had a good game at right-back.
The £90,000-a-week star has barely featured this season, with Diogo Dalot playing most of the games.
But he got a chance last night, and played a huge part in United’s first goal, crossing on the volley for Christian Eriksen to tap in.
It was a great outing for him, and Wolves officials may have liked what they saw if they were watching.
After the game though, United boss ten Hag suggested that wan-Bissaka may actually not be going anywhere in January.
He said (via United official): “He has a future. He has had some good years at Man United but, from the start of this season he has had a lot of illnesses and injuries. So, from the restart on, he is fit, so he could train with the team and you see him progressing.
“His fitness levels are getting better. His performance levels are getting better and I am really happy today with his performance. And he gave an assist and, especially, the way he gave the assist [I was happy with].
“About his movement, the timing and a great pass from Bruno. But the assist was great, so I am happy with his performance. He did good.”
Erik ten Hag’s comments on Wan-Bissaka’s future don’t bode well for Wolves
ten Hag’s comments are very interesting considering Wan-Bissaka’s lack of minutes this season.
To be fair to the Englishman, he’s been affected by illness and injury this season.
But it has still been felt prior to United’s game with Burnley that Wan-Bissaka was surplus to requirements.
But it sounds like ten Hag may not actually be done with the former Crystal Palace star.
He sounds really pleased with the star’s contributions last night.
His comments cast major doubt on Wolves signing the 25-year-old, who would already have been tricky to sign due to other clubs like West Ham United and Palace being interested.
