Good morning Man Utd fans
Manchester United are weighing up a January move for Norwich ace Max Aarons, reports SunSport’s Philip Cadden.
United manager Erik ten Hag is keen to bring in another right-back to rival Diogo Dalot, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s Old Trafford future in doubt.
The Red Devils have been long-term admirers of Aarons and were one of eight teams who scouted the 22-year-old at England Under-21s’ victory over Germany at Bramall Lane in September.
Th3e Canaries value him at £10million, while United also keep tabs on Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have joined the Red Devils in the transfer war to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Jeremie Frimpong.
Frimpong has been impressing for Leverkusen since leaving Celtic last year as he has already registered seven goals and 12 assists in 64 appearances.
According to Football Transfers, United will fight it out with the Blues for the full-back’s signature in January.
However, the defender is currently fully focused on making the Netherlands squad ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
And United manager Ten Hag hailed Harry Maguire’s “magnificent” return in the 1-0 victory against West Ham.
Maguire picked up his first Premier League start since being axed 11 weeks ago.
Ten Hag told Match of the Day: “He was magnificent in protecting the box.
“He is a great player and a really good defender and we have seen how important he is for the squad.
“I am really happy for the team of course but also Harry Maguire as he came off the pitch with a clean sheet.”
Finally, United star Bruno Fernandes will miss Sunday’s trip to Aston Villa after receiving his fifth yellow card of the season.
Fernandes was cautioned by referee Chris Kavanagh in the 90th minute for a foul on West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen.
The versatile midfielder has been booked in five of his 12 Premier League appearances this season.
The booking means the Portugal international is now set to serve a one-match ban.
