Manchester United are reportedly ready to sign Max Aarons for £20million amid ongoing concerns at the limitations of current right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big admirer of the Norwich defender and the 20-year-old is thought to be keen on a move to Old Trafford.

Aarons was left frustrated last summer after a transfer to Spanish giants Barcelona collapsed.

Norwich, who sit top of the Championship, decided to block a move for the England Under-21 international and are in no need to sell financially.

They banked more than £40million in the summer transfer window after selling Ben Godfrey and Jamal Lewis to Everton and Newcastle respectively.

But Manchester United are ready to test the Championship high-flyers with a bid, according to The Sun.

Solskjaer’s side were previously interested in signing Aarons in June 2019 but he was deemed as second choice behind Wan-Bissaka.

Wan-Bisakka has impressed defensively but is limited going forwards and Solskjaer is keen to attract a more attacking full-back.

Aarons is thought to be keen to leave Carrow Road, even if Daniel Farke’s side do bounce straight back up to the Premier League.

He wanted to join Barcelona in the summer but Norwich turned down a deal that would have seen him move to the Camp Nou.

Barcelona were only offering a loan move with a view to a permanent switch, which wasn’t deemed suitable by Norwich chiefs.

They have also previously knocked back an approach from Tottenham Hotspur, who bid £30m for his services 18 months ago.

However, his value is believed to have dipped to around £20m following the coronavirus pandemic.
