German source confirms Man Utd plan for Bundesliga signing. A reliable German source has provided a bittersweet update on a Man Utd move for an explosive option whose arrival would likely oust a player Erik ten Hag has been heavily reliant on in 2023. Man Utd’s fixture list has been ultra-congested since the turn of the year. Hunting trophies on four fronts will do that to a club, though it’s a small price to pay when silverware is lifted at the end of the journey.

One player who’s featured heavily in 2023 is right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The 25-year-old has racked up 13 starts across all competitions in two months. That includes both Europa League ties against Barcelona and the EFL Cup fourth round and both semi-final legs. Wan-Bissaka also played 56 minutes in the quarter-final victory over Charlton Athletic after replacing the injured Diogo Dalot. He again came off the bench for Dalot in the final on Sunday, this time at the halfway stage.
Dalot’s injury issues in 2023 have undoubtedly opened the door for Wan-Bissaka and by all accounts, he strides right through. Without Wan-Bissaka on the books and operating at a high level at right-back, Man Utd’s quest for an unlikely quadruple may have already fallen through. However, there’s always been speculation Ten Hag wants a more attack-minded option in the position. As such, links to Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries and Jeremie Frimpong of Bayer Leverkusen have never gone away.
