Ten Hag informs Barcelona defender United can’t sign him before deadline

It’s setting up for a quiet deadline day for Manchester United in terms of incomings.

Antony and Martin Dubravka will take United’s tally of players signing to six but it now sounds unlikely that a right-back will join before deadline day.

Barcelona’s Sergino Dest, who played under Ten Hag at Ajax, was seen as option that could replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka as well as push Diogo Dalot for a place in the starting line-up.

However, Jonathan Shrager claims Ten Hag has called the United States international to inform him that a deal is not possible before Thursday night’s 11pm deadline.

Shrager tweeted: “Dalot has been informed by Erik Ten Hag that it is not possible to sign him during this transfer window, because Aaron Wan-Bissaka is staying at Manchester United. Meanwhile, Villarreal are trying to negotiate a loan deal for Sergino, but this is being described as difficult.”

This comes down to Aaron Wan-Bissaka staying at the club.

Reports suggest United turned down offers from Crystal Palace and West Ham for the right-back, although we can only presume neither club made an appealing offer for the 24-year-old.

Shrager understands Villarreal are still trying to negotiate a loan deal for the former Ajax full-back.

    Why would DALOT be informed he cannot be signed? He already is a United player.
