EPL Why Erik ten Hag made U-turn on offloading Man United star. After the club’s board intervened, manager Erik ten Hag of Manchester United opted against selling right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The board was able to convince the former Ajax manager that the defender still had hope of playing for the Theatre of Dreams.
This season, Ten Hag has prioritized Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot at that position.
Wan-Bissaka transferred from Crystal Palace to Manchester United in 2019 for a sum of around £50 million.
The defender’s one-on-one defensive skills, however, are frequently praised, despite the fact that his lack of offensive experience has been considered inadequate.
This summer, Palace sought to sign him back up, and it appeared as though he would be leaving Old Trafford. However, the Eagles would only agree to pay roughly £10 million, costing United a loss of £40 million.
Ten Hag was ready to let him leave in order to sign Barcelona’s Sergino Dest.
And Athletic claims that Ten Hag was encouraged to do so following a United board intervention.
According to the report, Ten Hag was made aware of Wan-potential Bissaka’s and believed that with the Dutchman’s guidance, he might develop in the attacking third.
