Manchester United target and Norwich City defender Max Aarons would reportedly cost the Red Devils just £20m should they opt to make a move next summer.
Aarons, 20, joined Norwich’s youth academy in 2016 after departing Luton Town.
After climbing the Canaries’ ranks, the highly-rated full-back has gone on to feature in over 100 senior first-team matches for his side.
Despite now finding himself back in the Championship, Aarons was part of the Norwich side who were promoted at the end of the 2018-19 season.
During last season in England’s top-flight, Aarons enjoyed a very decent run of form which he was rewarded for by being named in 36 of Norwich’s 38 Premier League matches.
A recent report from leading journalist Fabrizio Romano claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his recruitment staff have been monitoring the 20-year-old for quite some time.
It is believed that the Red Devils are keen to bring the young English full-back to Old Trafford in an attempt to provide Aaron Wan-Bissaka with some competition.
Manchester United have Max Aarons in their radar by months and he’s appreciated. No official bid or anything advanced at the moment, he’s not close to join #mufc now. 🔴
Moises Caicedo: it’s up to Man Utd. Contacts on but no decision made yet. Other clubs also interested. 🇪🇨

The latest in the ongoing saga comes from The Sun who have claimed that any proposed deal for Norwich’s 20-year-old is most likely to happen next summer but a transfer could cost United just £20m.
