Manchester United are ‘set to make a MASSIVE £40m loss’ on Aaron Wan-Bissaka just three years after signing him, as ‘Crystal Palace eye £10m return’… while Red Devils ‘line-up moves for Thomas Meunier and Sergino Dest’

  • Manchester United will allow Aaron Wan-Bissaka rejoin Crystal Palace for £10m  
  • The Red Devils signed the 24-year-old right-back for £50m just three years ago 
  • He initially impressed but has struggled in recent times, losing his starting place
  • United want to sign either Thomas Meunier or Sergino Dest as a replacement
  • Erik ten Hag is still looking to strengthen in several areas including full-back 

Manchester United are set to make a £40million loss on Aaron Wan-Bisakka as they line-up moves for Thomas Meunier and Sergino Dest, according to reports.

Erik ten Hag’s side are still looking to strengthen in several areas including full-back, with Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot facing criticism for their poor performances at right-back over the past year.

And just three years after they signed the former Crystal Palace youngster for £50m, United are prepared to sell Wan-Bissaka back to Selhurst Park for just £10m, according to The Telegraph.

Both Wan-Bissaka and Diego Dalot have been criticised for their performances at right-back

Crystal Palace are reportedly keen on signing the full-back for £10m after selling him for £50m

The Palace academy graduate originally impressed at Old Trafford, but has failed to develop as hoped and has since lost his place in the United starting XI to Dalot, with his attacking play never quite building on his defensive abilities.

His former side are now interested in offering the 24-year-old an escape, but are only willing to pay £10m to do so.

Ten Hag is looking to replace Wan-Bissaka with one of Borussia Dortmund right-back Meunier or Barcelona’s Sergino Dest.

Meunier, 30, has started both games for Dortmund in the Bundesliga so far, although he was substituted at half-time during last weekend’s 3-1 win over Freiburg.

The Belgian has previously played for Paris Saint-Germain, Club Brugge and Virton, while he has also won 56 caps for Belgium.

Erik ten Hag is also targeting Barcelona’s Sergino Dest but his price tag of £17m is a challenge

Dest meanwhile has made 72 appearances across two seasons at the Nou Camp after he joined Barcelona from Ajax for £23.5m.

He has often featured as a rotational option for the Catalan giants however with Sergi Roberto and Ronald Araujo preferred by Xavi at right-back during pre-season, while Dest was left out of their squad for Saturday’s LaLiga opener.

The American previously played under Ten Hag in the Netherlands and this move follows the trend of the Dutchman signing players he has managed before or seen close up in the Eredivise, where the new United manager has spent the majority of his managerial career.

Spanish publication Sport reported last week that Ten Hag is willing to send Dalot the other way to complete a deal for Dest. Barcelona have set a price tag of £17million for the USA international but United are hoping to strike a deal by offering the Portuguese full-back in exchange.

However, the Telegraph report that although United are yet to make an offer for Meunier, they are more likely to sign him than Dest due to the price tag Barcelona have placed on the USA international.
