Manchester United star Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been ranked as the third best right-back in the world by FourFourTwo.
The 22-year-old has enjoyed a fantastic start to his Old Trafford career, finally solving the long-standing issue at right-back.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer invested heavily in his defence in his first summer transfer window, and the Reds look far more solid with the former Crystal Palace man on the flank.
Wan-Bissaka is in contention to be United’s player of the season; he has been almost flawless defensively and is seldom beaten in a one-on-one scenario.
And it’s testament to the youngster’s talent that he has been named so highly on a list of world-class full-backs, given his relative inexperience at the highest level.
Only Joshua Kimmich and Trent Alexander-Arnold are viewed as better full-backs than Wan-Bissaka.
While we cannot dispute Alexander-Arnold’s unbelievable attacking ability, we feel Wan-Bissaka is more proficient in his primary responsibility which is defending.
However, the role of the modern day full-back is to act as a second winger as well as a defender, and Wan-Bissaka still has plenty of room to improve his game going forward.
Solskjaer could have found United’s full-back for the next decade and we can’t wait to see how Wan-Bissaka evolves into the complete right-back over the next few seasons.
