Manchester United could be ready to accept major loss on expensive Solskjaer signing

Posted by

Manchester United could reportedly be ready to put Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s future in doubt by handing a new deal to Diogo Dalot.

The Red Devils seem set to put their trust in Dalot after his improved form this season, with Wan-Bissaka perhaps set to move on as a result, according to the Daily Star.

The report notes that Man Utd will be aware they’ll have to make a big loss on Wan-Bissaka if he does leave, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for some reason forking out a ridiculous £50million for the defender when he joined from Crystal Palace in the summer of 2019.

Wan-Bissaka looked a decent prospect at Palace, though that big fee always seemed a little suspect for such an unproven player, and it’s fair to say he’s really not delivered on that investment since his move to Old Trafford.

Dalot seems the better long-term option for United, and fans will surely be frustrated that Solskjaer was able to blow so much money on such a poor signing when he was manager.

Wan-Bissaka joined MUFC in the same summer that Harry Maguire and Daniel James also arrived, with those two also proving poor choices by former manager Solskjaer.

  1. Even Diogo Dalot is NOT GOOD ENOUGH for MU. Must upgrade as soon as possible if MU want to challenge for top spot next season

  2. Im laughing loudly guys. Dalot hasn’t prooved anything going forward and on his defensive skills he is worse than bissaka

    1. Unless United replace Wan-Bissaka with James (Chelsea) who gets a ton of help from his mid-fielders or Kyle Walker who gets a ton of help from his wingers and mid-fielders, they won’t find another RB in the EPL that defends really well and gets forward with authority.
      * Dalot started well going forward, putting in good crosses but we haven’t seen any signs of this for a very long time, and he is a defensive liability. Wingers look forward to playing against him.
      * Trent-Arnold is possibly the best player in the EPL at putting balls into the box and has a great shot but he is a terrible defender and gets so much help from his wingers and central defenders.

      Wan-Bissaka looks awkward on the ball but prior to his banishment to the bench was a great deal more comfortable on the ball and his balls into the box where decent. That said, there is not a winger in the EPL that wanted to take him on. He shut them all down including Mane, Sane, Mahrez, Sterling, Zaha et al. They got zero joy down his side. And he got NO HELP from his wingers or mid-fielders. Unfortunately, Dalot is a weak defender and if he isn’t offering anything going forward then why play him over Wan-Bissaka, who bailed out Maguire and co a million times?

  3. Wan-bissaka is better than Delot what can he do poor in defending poor in crossing no single assist or a goal i prefer aaron than him.

  4. Dalot isn’t good enough both players are still struggling for form, Right back must be someone like Gary Neville strong, tough and quick.

  5. Wanbisaka have advbntage of defeding his role wile.dalot can’t do that for if to say defender can defend isn’t must to him to make an asist to attakers.

  6. Dalot’s development was interrupted by injury and Ole’s mismanagement of the squad, but he did OK in Italy and in terms of attacking support to the forwards, he is clearly more progressive, but he tends to overhit crosses. It’s his place to lose at the moment.

    Wan-Bissaka has suffered because of United’s general lack of cohesion defensively and has been scapegoated by United’s fanbase falling for the media agenda, hook, line & sinker (when the CBs have not supported him before Varane’s arrival – but is a quality one on one defender. He has also looked lost when he supports the attack, due in equal measure to his tendency to underhit crosses, absence of a stable structure in front of him and our lack of pace at CB, which contributes to his hesitancy.

    Would thrive in a back 4 which converts to a 3-5-2 (with the left back pushing into midfield) which for the life of me I cannot understand why we haven’t deployed this system, as it would provide balance across the team, with our current players.

    In defence, neither are the main problem and both offer different attributes which would support a campaign.

    The elephant in the room has been Maguire, who again can be compensated for, but with a bigger impact on the team.

    We need a quality DM anyway (and have done, for years), but this must be supplemented with a dominant pacy CB. Until we get one, the team shape and performance would be better served by Bailly or Tuanzebe partnering Varane, simple as.

  7. Bisaka, Maguire were a desperate signing for MU who were in need of defender. It was the worst mistake Ole made. Same for Pogba during Jose time and Felini during Moyes time. MU have been cheated by overrated players. Someone is earning big commission from the transaction.

  8. Bissaka saved man u alot even at a time when every player looked to be in poor form .But if that is how the club can pay him then its ok

  9. Whaat? That you want Wan Bisaka out? Worst surprise of the year! One question. Between a good defender but poor in bringing in crosses and scoring (Bisaka) and a poor defender whose seem to play better in foward position, who would a team manager prefer to field? I see a possibility of Man U making bad decision to sell there defending Machine at a throw- away price.
    Infact, were it not for Wan Bisaka, Man U would have conceded so many goals.

  10. A great act of stupidity to let Wan Bissaka go. Dalot should go instead, he doesn’t know what it is to be defender.

  11. Keep Wan Bissaka and mould him into a world class right back…
    Like SAF did with his players during his tenure… created so many world class players… It’s only matter of time
    Wan Bissaka great with defending and Dalot a moving forward defender… RR can utilised both accordingly depending on the match day…

  12. I dont think it will be agood idea for Ralf to consider Dalot as the starter at the 1st eleven because Aaron Bissaka is more talented en experienced than Dalot
