Manchester United have completely changed their stance on the future of Aaron Wan-Bissaka after the right-back has impressed Erik ten Hag.

Back in April, Aaron Wan-Bissaka was named as one of seven first-team players who Manchester United were planning to sell in the summer in order to raise funds for Erik ten Hag‘s transfer budget.

However, Wan-Bissaka showed in the second half of the 2022/23 season that he can be a vital asset to the Dutch manager, putting in valuable performances on multiple occasions while Diogo Dalot suffered from injury problems.

It is now said, according to Alan Nixon, that United have changed their mind – they are ready to trigger the one-year extension that exists in Wan-Bissaka’s current contract.

Wan-Bissaka’s existing deal expires in June 2024, and United are keen to keep him until at least 2025 after the player has impressed Ten Hag in the last six months.

The report also states that United are keen on Monaco defender Axel Disasi, although the French team’s asking price is too high.

Elsewhere, United recently defeated Arsenal 2-0 in their third pre-season friendly of the summer, and their first of four fixtures set to take place in the USA.

Wan-Bissaka played the first 45 minutes as he continues to build fitness after the summer break, with Diogo Dalot back on the field for the first time for the second half.
