According to Manchester Evening News, bookmakers Ladbrokes has suspended the betting on Aaron Wan-Bissaka joining Manchester United this summer.
With United We Stand editor and incredibly reliable journalist Andy Mitten claiming Wan-Bissaka has agreed terms with the Red Devils, as per GQ, it’s time to get excited.
Wan-Bissaka is exactly the sort of young hungry player United should be targeting. The maturity he showed last season for Crystal Palace was phenomenal and there’s a lot pointing towards a stellar career for England U21 international.
If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants players for the future, he picked a good one in AWB.
It now looks like he will become the club’s second signing of the summer after sealing a deal for Daniel James from Swansea City.
Bookmakers often to do this with transfers and it’s not because they know more than you or I, so I’m not suggesting that it’s worth getting excited over because Ladbrokes has suspended the betting on him joining United.
Diogo Dalot must be looking at this with an ugh-esque expression across his face. As a young talented player himself, he should see this as welcome competition. AWB will be starting games at right-back next season but it’s also an opportunity for Dalot to shake him up, or even try take the right wing spot since Solskjaer played him there last season.
