Roma manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly interested in signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 24-year-old Manchester United right-back has fallen behind Diogo Dalot in the pecking order at Old Trafford – having played just two of their last eight Premier League games. Wan-Bissaka is often praised for his defensive strength but criticized for his lack of attacking quality, having failed to provide an assist in 26 games in all competitions this season.

United legend Paul Scholes has called the Englishman a “brilliant defender” but insists he is “useless on the ball”, while Arsenal icon Paul Merson once said: “Wan-Bissaka is a very good defender but he will don’t bring you seven or eight assists a season.”

Wan-Bissaka was signed by United from Crystal Palace for £50million in the summer of 2019 and has since made 126 appearances for the club in all competitions. His existing contract expires in June 2024, although the Red Devils have the option to extend it by a year.

According to The Sun, Mourinho is interested in bringing Wan-Bissaka to Roma. The manager has been linked with several right-backs since his appointment last summer and has frequently used loanee Arsenal star Ainsley Maitland-Niles – a midfielder by trade – in the position.

Wan-Bissaka is believed to be waiting to find out if he is included in Erik ten Hag’s plans at Old Trafford before making a decision on his future. Recent rumors suggest the new boss is uninterested in keeping the former Palace ace on United’s books.

Should Manchester United sell Aaron Wan-Bissaka? Let us know in the comments below!

Mourinho already has three Englishmen in his squad: Maitland-Niles, Chris Smalling and Tammy Abraham. The latter has been a huge success in Italy since leaving Chelsea last summer, scoring 24 goals in all competitions.

The Portugal manager was not in charge at Old Trafford when Wan-Bissaka arrived after being sacked by United in December 2018. The youngster was just emerging at Palace at the time and was named the club’s Player of the Year this season.

Mourinho could face competition for Wan-Bissaka’s signature. Palace are believed to be interested in re-signing him on loan this summer. The London team will struggle to afford the talent’s full wages and an eight-figure transfer fee, hence their preference for a loan.

Right-back is a position Palace manager Patrick Vieira might want to strengthen. Nathan Ferguson was signed to replace Wan-Bissaka in July 2020 but the injury-plagued prospect has played just eight minutes of Premier League football since.

There are also question marks over the future of Nathaniel Clyne and Joel Ward. Both right-backs are now in their 30s, Clyne is less than two months out of contract and Ward is about to enter the final year of his contract.

“I don’t want to comment, he’s a United player,” said Vieira when asked about Wan-Bissaka. “I know he went through the academy here and people love him for what he did for Crystal Palace but he’s a United player.”
