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.
