Aaron Wan-Bissaka being lined up by Italian giants for summer transfer



| Last Updated:


Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka could replace Denzel Dumfries should the Dutchman leave Inter Milan this summer.

According to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, Wan-Bissaka is part of a list of players that Inter Milan are considering this summer to replace Dumfries.

While the Champions League finalists still prefer an extension on Dumfries’ contract, negotiations have stalled with the 27-year-old asking for a large wage increase.

With the Dutch international’s contract expiring in June 2025, if an extension is not possible, then Inter Milan will be looking to sell the right-back this summer.

Should this be the case, Manchester United will no doubt be interested in making a move for Dumfries, having been linked with him on several occasions in the past.

And if Dumfries is to leave Inter Milan, then a first-team quality replacement will be needed.

Reportedly, there are three names on Inter’s list of potential replacements, Michael Kayode, Emil Holm and Manchester United’s own Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Wan-Bissaka has featured in just 17 matches for Manchester United this season, with the Englishman failing to break back into the regular starting lineup.

While this is partly due to injuries that Wan-Bissaka has been struggling with throughout the season, it has become clear that Erik ten Hag prefers Diogo Dalot, who has been having a career-best season at Old Trafford.

Therefore, now could be a good time for Manchester United to part ways with Wan-Bissaka, who has been linked with Inter Milan on several occasions in the past.

However, just last month, United activated a clause in Wan-Bissaka’s contract, which was due to expire at the end of this season, keeping the 26-year-old at the club until 2025.

While this could simply be to allow them to sell him this summer, it may also suggest that the right-back is a part of the future plans for new owners INEOS and could, therefore, remain at the club for the foreseeable future.
