Manchester United open contract talks with Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United intend to extend Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s contract.

A year ago this seemed unlikely because Wan-Bissaka’s performances had flattered to deceive and it looked like Erik ten Hag would prefer Diogo Dalot at right-back.

That is no longer the case as the former Crystal Palace defender can now consider himself a regular in the side.

Wan-Bissaka is now in the final year of the contract he signed in 2019, although United have an option to extend it by one season.

According to the Telegraph, United plan to extend Wan-Bissaka’s contract and ‘discussions have taken place in the last month’ over a new deal to extend his stay.

This is a reward for the 25-year-old’s progression, but I am still under the impression that Ten Hag would like to strengthen at right-back. The manager didn’t get a chance to during the summer transfer window because other areas needed to be addressed first.

Ten Hag would prefer a defender that is more comfortable when receiving the ball since most of Andre Onana’s short passes go to the right, but defensively he has been decent this season.

Overall, I would say Wan-Bissaka deserves a new deal at United because he has improved under Ten Hag and I firmly believe he’s a better option — to start — than Dalot.
