Good morning Man Utd fans
Manchester United are weighing up a January move for Norwich ace Max Aarons, SunSport’s Philip Cadden reports.
United manager Erik ten Hag is ready to bring in another right-back in rivals Diogo Dalot, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s future at Old Trafford in doubt.
The Red Devils have been long-term admirers of Aarons and were one of eight teams scouting the 22-year-old in England Under-21s’ win over Germany at Bramall Lane in September.
Th3e Canary value him at £10m, while United are also tracking Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have joined the Red Devils in the transfer war to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Jeremie Frimpong.
Frimpong has been impressive for Leverkusen since leaving Celtic last year, having already registered seven goals and 12 assists in 64 appearances.
According to Football Transfers, United will battle the Blues for the full-back’s signature in January.
However, the defender is currently fully focused on making the Netherlands squad ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
And United manager Ten Hag praised Harry Maguire’s “magnificent” return in the 1-0 win against West Ham.
Maguire earned his first Premier League start since being sacked 11 weeks ago.
Ten Hag said on Match of the Day: “He was superb in protecting the box.
“He is a great player and a very good defender and we have seen how important he is to the squad.
“I’m very happy for the team, of course, but also for Harry Maguire as he came off the pitch with a clean sheet.”
Finally, United star Bruno Fernandes will miss Sunday’s trip to Aston Villa after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.
Fernandes was booked by referee Chris Kavanagh in the 90th minute for a foul on West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen.
The versatile midfielder has been booked in five of his 12 Premier League appearances this season.
The booking means the Portugal international is now set to serve a one-match ban.
