Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is reportedly not in Erik ten Hag’s plans for next season, with a departure from Old Trafford seemingly on the cards.
According to Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth, the new Man Utd manager doesn’t want to keep Wan-Bissaka, and a loan deal will only be allowed if it comes with a serious obligation to be made permanent.
See below for details, with Wan-Bissaka’s days at United looking numbered after a difficult spell since signing from Crystal Palace back in 2019…
Manchester United will allow defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka to leave this summer. It is thought he won’t figure in Erik ten Hag’s plans. United would prefer a permanent deal, but won’t rule out a loan – provided it comes with a serious option or obligation to buy. #WanBissaka #MUFC

Fabrizio Romano recently revealed on CaughtOffside that Wan-Bissaka’s name came up in Ten Hag’s meeting with United recruitment staff, along with Eric Bailly and Marcus Rashford.
In terms of possible replacements, United could do with a more attack-minded option in that position, and 90min have linked them with Barcelona full-back Sergino Dest, who has shown great potential, even if he’s struggled at the Nou Camp.
Wan-Bissaka has just never quite looked the right fit for a big club, with his attacking play nowhere near the standard of players like Trent Alexander-Arnold or Reece James, who have shone for United’s rivals.
