Man Utd abandon Wan Bissaka transfer for new summer target - Thomas Meunier, manchester united, diogo dalot, Aaron wan Bissaka

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will reportedly drop interest in Aaron Wan Bissaka, thanks to Diogo Dalot’s impressive form of late.

According to previous reports, 21-year-old Crystal Palace Wan Bissaka was United’s top defensive target. However,  £19million signing Diogo Dalot is slowly creeping into Solskjaer’s plans, and the Norwegian is willing to give the 20-year-old a chance.

Dalot is young and versatile, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ruling against having two young players battling for a similar position, and would rather opt for a more experienced player in out-of-favour Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Meunier according to Mirror.

Following his €6 million move to PSG in 2016, Thomas Meunier has made 98 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfits, scoring 12 goals and providing 20 assists as a right back.

Of late, Meunier is down the chain of command at Paris Saint Germain and is reportedly keen on a move to Manchester at the end of the season having just started 53 percent of his 19 games so far in the league.

Thomas Meunier is expected to become a direct replacement to leaving Antonio Valencia, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to slowly groom Diogo Dalot who could also feature as a right midfielder and winger.

Meunier is contracted to PSG until 2020, and may not come as cheap as expected, with the player valued at €35 million as per Transfermarkt.
