Sky Sports News reporter: Man United stepping up interest in 19-year-old
Kaveh Solhekol delivers an update on Man United's reported interest in signing Max Aarons from Norwich City
Manchester United are stepping up their interest in signing Max Aarons from Norwich City this summer, according to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol.
The Red Devils are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to prepare his squad for his first full campaign in charge.
Manchester United have already completed a deal to sign midfielder Daniel James from Swansea City, and Juan Mata has signed a new contract to keep the Spaniard at the club.
Now, reporter Solhekol has suggested that Manchester United have their focus on bringing in 19-year-old defender Aarons from Norwich City this summer.
The Sky Sports News reporter claims that Manchester United view Aarons as a potential alternative to Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who they have also been linked with this summer.
Writing on Twitter, Solhekol said: “Manchester United stepping up their pursuit of Norwich City right back Max Aarons. See him as alternative to Aaron Wan Bissaka.
“United have been in talks to sign Wan Bissaka but have not been able to agree deal with Crystal Palace yet. Aarons is EFL young player of the season.”
Aarons scored two goals and made six assists in 41 Championship appearances for Norwich City last season, also scoring once in the League Cup for the Canaries.
Manchester United, meanwhile, finished the season in a disappointing fashion as they ended up sixth and without a trophy following the sacking of Jose Mourinho back in December.
