Aaron Wan-Bissaka may become third unavailable Man United player in January



| Last Updated:


Aaron Wan-Bissaka may become the second player unavailable to represent Manchester United in January due to International commitments.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has never represented a senior national team on the world stage, despite having a successful career at Manchester United.

The right-back was born in Croydon, England, in 1997, but is of Congolese descent, and has never represented either country beyond at a youth level. He is currently available for call-up for England, but with Gareth Southgate having plenty of others in his position to choose from, he has never won a cap for his country.

Wan-Bissaka has always stated that he wishes to represent England over DR Congo, but according to The Athletic, the Congo have offered the player the chance to play in the upcoming African Cup of Nations.

Wan-Bissaka is said to be considering the opportunity, and if he was to accept, he would become the third player who would be unavailable for fixtures in January and February for United.

The tournament, which runs from 13 January to 11 February, has already seen Cameroon qualify, and at present, André Onana is set to represent the Indomitable Lions on the national stage of the competition.

Sofyan Amrabat could also be unavailable for that period should he be selected to represent his home nation of Morocco, which is likely considering his importance during their recent World Cup exploits in Qatar.

Wan-Bissaka’s choice could mean that Erik ten Hag will be without him, Amrabat and/or Onana for up to a month, should at least one of their respective teams make it to the final of the competition.
