Erik ten Hag has brutally snubbed Aaron Wan-Bissaka with Manchester United exploring the transfer market for a new right-back.
After a sub-par campaign last season, Wan-Bissaka was dropped by Ten Hag upon his arrival in the summer. The 24-year-old is yet to start a game under the Dutchman, with injury keeping him sidelined since September while Diogo Dalot has become first-choice.
And it looks like his United career could be over as his manager hinted he's not up to scratch following their 1-0 win against West Ham on Sunday (October 30). Speaking to Sky Sports, Ten Hag said: "I’m really happy with the development of Diogo.

"In possession he's really good, he has the breath to go up and down so the development is really good. But I have to mention a club as Manchester United need two good full-backs because we have a lot of games to cover."
Following that, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claimed the Red Devils will look to make a defensive addition if they can secure Wan-Bissaka's exit. He tweeted: "Man Utd will explore market for new right-back, depending on Wan-Bissaka departure. Jeremie Frimpong among players scouted — not the only one."
Has Ten Hag treated Wan-Bissaka harshly? Let us know in the comments section.
Bayer Leverkusen's Frimpong, 21, has been impressing in the Bundesliga since joining from Celtic in January 2021. He's racked up seven goals and 12 assists in 64 appearances for the German club.
The Dutch youth international has been utilised further forward on the right side of midfield this season, though, a position which doesn't exist in Ten Hag's United set up.
He came through the ranks at Manchester City, leaving in September 2019 to join Celtic, where he was given his first taste of senior football. Frimpong is pushing for a spot in the Netherlands squad for the Qatar World Cup.
