Man Utd still in Kieran Trippier and Max Aarons transfer hunt with Solskjaer keen for new full-back optionsJanuary 28, 2021
MANCHESTER UNITED remain interested in Kieran Trippier and Max Aarons, according to reports.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first-choice right-back.
But the Norwegian wants to recruit competition for the 23-year-old.
And should AC Milan decide to make Diogo Dalot's loan switch permanent at the end of the season, United have a pretty good idea of who they will try to recruit.
According to Forbes, both Trippier and Aarons are on the Red Devils' radar – despite their difference in profiles.
Former Tottenham No2 Trippier, 30, would provide ample experience in the role, having played Champions League football with both Spurs and Atletico Madrid.
And United's school of thought suggests that the former Manchester City academy starlet could help Wan-Bissaka hone his somewhat limited attacking play.
Local lad Tripper, who hails from nearby Bury, has made 53 appearances since switching North London for the Spanish capital in 2019.
The England international is currently serving a ten-week betting ban, however, after landing himself in hot water with the FA.
Aarons, who SunSport told you United were chasing last month,plies his trade in the Championship with Norwich, after suffering relegation with the Canaries last season.

Two years Wan-Bissaka's junior, Aarons would provide more direct, long-term competition for Wan-Bissaka at right-back.
The highly-rated youngster has already notched up 110 senior appearances for Norwich.
Daniel Farke will be reluctant to sell, however, with Norwich sitting top of the table – having even thwarted a dream move to Barcelona for the academy product last summer.
