Man United ‘still considering’ move for new right-back

Man United and Erik ten Hag are still weighing up moving for a new right-back, in spite of Diogo Dalot’s recent form.

There can be no doubt that Manchester United are now getting the best out of Diogo Dalot.

The Portuguese right-back has lifted his game to a new level under Erik ten Hag. He deserves credit for that. Though he cannot do it all on his own.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is completely out of favour, though he’ll likely play this weekend due to Dalot’s suspension. The Englishman isn’t viewed as a long-term option by Ten Hag, though.

The latest transfer information from Fabrizio Romano in regard to signing a new right-back is certainly intriguing. Apparently, United are ‘still considering’ a move to sign a player in this ‘priority’ position.

Despite Dalot performing at the ‘top level, Ten Hag still ‘wants’ one more right-back. On top of that, United will ‘try to find a solution’ for Wan-Bissaka.

Check out Fabrizio Romano’s tweet on a Man United move for a new right-back here:

Dalot has been super impressive. He’s absolutely proving me wrong right now. Though there’s still a feeling that inconsistency still haunts his game somewhat.

Perhaps bringing in someone who can seriously challenge for starts will help keep Dalot focused, while also spurring the ex-Porto man onto even better performances.

Someone like Sergino Dest would absolutely challenge for regular starts the moment he (theoretically) walked through the door. This would undoubtedly be a good signing, though it’s one that’d have to wait until next summer.

In terms of feasible options in January, you’d imagine that list is a rather short one due to most clubs typically not wanting to sell their better players in the mid-season window.
