Leeds United want January transfer for Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Leeds United and Jesse Marsch are eyeing a move for wantaway Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to 90min.

The Guardian reported on 29 June 2019 that Manchester United signed Wan-Bissaka for £45m but the defender has done little to make an impression at Old Trafford.

90min confessed that Leeds United alongside West Ham United and Crystal Palace are showing interest in the right-back, however, Wolves are leading the race for his signature.

“Former club Crystal Palace are amongst the clubs who have spoken to United, whilst the likes of West Ham and Leeds have also shown interest,” as quoted by 90min.

“However, sources have now confirmed to 90min that Wolves are leading the chase.”

No thanks.

Leeds United should stay well clear of this one, Wan-Bissaka has done little to warrant a move to another Premier League club and he isn’t what the Whites need right now.

A left-back has to be high on the agenda for Leeds United in January and unfortunately for Wan-Bissaka, his right-back position isn’t on the list of needs right now.

Also, Leeds doesn’t want to be bringing in another full-back who struggles to defend, yes Wan-Bissaka makes the occasional flashy slide-tackle but he also gets rinsed far too easily.

Sure and tested defenders are what Marsch’s team needs right now, proper leaders from the back, not a shy and missing Manchester United full-back.

Whether the Whites actually make a move or not remains to be seen, but it looks like Wolves are in the driving seat for this one anyway. Wan-Bissaka himself may still prove to be a useful weapon for a Premier League team, but it’s no thanks from Leeds for now.

In other Leeds United news, talks are underway over this player quitting Elland Road for a high-paid contract.
