What has Dean Jones said about Wan-Bissaka?
Jones believes Manchester United are eager to find a new club for Wan-Bissaka before the transfer window reopens in a matter of weeks.
The journalist is aware of West Ham’s interest and believes many clubs will consider whether to pry the 25-year-old off the hands of the Red Devils.
Jones told GiveMeSport: “They are trying to find a way to get Wan-Bissaka out.
“West Ham are considering him, so could they look at him? I think there are a number of potential homes for him and then we can get a better idea of how Manchester United will replace him.”
Why Man United want to offload Wan-Bissaka in January?
Seconds Transfer marketWan-Bissaka has been limited to just four minutes of action since the start of the campaign, so it is very clear that he is not at the forefront of Ten Hag’s plans.
Diogo Dalot has made the right-back position his own, especially since ten Hag was appointed Red Devils boss, and it has been difficult for the London-born outcast to force his way into the fray.
Manchester United paid £50m to sign Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace more than three years ago and he has failed to live up to expectations.
He was given the chance to impress at Ten Hag while Dalot was at the World Cup with Portugal, but his struggles came to the fore in a friendly against Cadiz and as a result he was only rated 4/ 10 for the Manchester Evening. news
Wan-Bissaka will enter the final 18 months of his £100,000-a-week deal at the start of the year, so the winter transfer window will be an ideal opportunity for the Red Devils to cash in.
