‘Absolutely open’ - Fabrizio Romano issues Man Utd transfer update on duo

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and David De Gea have both been linked with moves away from Manchester United.

Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on Manchester United stars Aaron Wan-Bissaka and David de Gea as their futures at the club remain in doubt.

Wan-Bissaka joined the Red Devils from Crystal Palace in 2019 but has made only one appearance this season after finding himself falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

The right-back was heavily linked with a move away from United in the summer, with Crystal Palace and Roma eager to offer him more regular first-team football.

While Wan-Bissaka remained at the club, there have been fresh suggestions he could move on in January, with ManchesterWorld understanding United were interested in recruiting in that area over the summer.

Writing in his BetVictor blog, Fabrizio Romano said: “Man United will try to find a solution for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

“He’s considered available on the market as Erik ten Hag already tried to bring in Sergino Dest in August but it was impossible because of Wan-Bissaka staying.”

Meanwhile, United will also look to make a decision on De Gea’s contract as they continue to be linked with Jordan Pickford.

The Spaniard’s current deal expires next summer, although it could be extended by a further year, but a summer departure could shift his £350,000 per-week wages off the books.

Despite their reported interest in the Everton goalkeeper, Romano has claimed De Gea’s situation is still uncertain.

The journalist wrote: “A decision on David De Gea’s contract will be made after November.

“Pickford is considered an important goalkeeper but talks have not started yet as of now – it depends on De Gea situation, absolutely open.”
