EXCLUSIVE: Isak Hansen-Aaroen contract update as Man United’s new approach revealed



| Last Updated:


Isak Hansen-Aaroen is ‘very unlikely’ to leave Manchester United this month as the club looks to secure his signature on a new deal, UtdDistrict understands.

Hansen-Aaroen, 19, has just five months remaining on his current contract at Old Trafford and is yet to commit his future to the club.

The talented midfielder has attracted interest from the likes of Ajax, Atletico Madrid and Napoli, and it has been stated that he’s been ‘disappointed’ by the lack of first-team opportunities at United.

Hansen-Aaroen was not included in the matchday squad to face Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup earlier this month and is also involved in the under-21s game against Norwich at Old Trafford this Saturday, meaning he’s unlikely to be involved in the FA Cup fourth-round against Newport on Sunday.

However, recent developments have taken place in relation to the player’s situation. UtdDistrict exclusively revealed that ‘positive developments’ were made in contract negotiations and that he had been offered a ‘significant’ contract.

Now, it appears that United have planned out their next move for the youngster should he sign the deal.

UtdDistrict understands that whilst there is no major update in regards to Hansen-Aaroen’s contract being signed, sealed and delivered; it has been described as ‘very unlikely’ that he will leave the club in the January transfer market as talks continue towards a possible solution. There have also been ‘plenty’ of approaches for the youngster.

A source close to the situation has explained that should Hansen-Aaroen sign a new deal, United will look to move quickly to secure him a good loan move before the end of the window to increase his experience in the men’s game.

Considering Hansen-Aaroen’s problem has seemed to be in relation to his eventual progression into the first team, the focus on a loan move into the first-team world is a positive step forward.

United’s current midfield is filled with options in the advanced midfielder role, with the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Mason Mount and Christian Eriksen. The team are also only in two competitions and has limited opportunity for rotation.
