United hope for bidding war as third club registers interest in £90k p/w star after failing in January pursuit

As Manchester United close in a £76.5 million double-swoop of Dutch duo Matthijs de Ligt and Joshua Zirkzee, attention will then presumably turn to outgoings in hopes of recuperating some funds.

As it stands, the Red Devils’ only outgoing of the summer is Alvaro Fernandez, who joined Benfica upon the culmination of his loan spell after they opted to activate his £5.1 million buy clause.

Donny van de Beek is closing in on a permanent move to Girona, but United only stand to gain a measly £421,000 from his initial exit when it’s finalised.

Therefore, sanctioning the sales of more profitable assets is vital if INEOS want an increased transfer budget – and it’s not as if the interest isn’t there. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is one player who’s been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford since Erik ten Hag took the reins, primarily due to the manager’s preference for Diogo Dalot on the right side of defence.

The three clubs circling Wan-Bissaka

Galatasaray and West Ham United have already established their interest in the 26-year-old, with the latter providing him the option of returning to London and staying in the Premier League.

However, should he want to pull the curtains entirely on his career in Europe, Al Nassr are ready to reignite their pursuit of Wan-Bissaka, having failed in their first approach back in January – as per Ben Jacobs speaking to GiveMeSport.

United were unwilling to sanction a mid-season exit for the player, and rightly so, given the debilitating injury crisis that struck the backline across the term.

Now that they have a month until the 2024/2025 campaign kicks off, they could look at hashing out a deal and seeing which club tables the highest bid; you’d imagine the Saudi Pro League outfit can offer a significantly more lucrative proposal for both Wan-Bissaka and the Reds than the other sides.
