Al-Nassr launch bid for Man United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Saudi Pro League club Al-Nassr are set to send an offer to Manchester United for defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to the Telegraph.

Al-Nassr are in the market for a full-back and have identified Wan-Bissaka as a target.

They previously submitted a £20 million bid for Tottenham Hotspur right-back Emerson Royal, but their offer was rejected.

Following the activation of Wan-Bissaka’s one-year contract extension clause until 2025, he has around 18 months left on his deal.

Intriguingly, Al-Nassr have already exhausted their foreign player quota and would need to deregister someone to register Wan-Bissaka.

Al-Nassr currently have Cristiano Ronaldo, Sadio Mane, Aymeric Laporte, Otavio, Seko Fofana, Alex Telles and Marcelo Brozovic on their books after splashing the cash in the 2023 summer transfer window.

Wan-Bissaka has made 17 appearances for United this season after struggling with a hamstring injury and falling behind Diogo Dalot ahead of him in the pecking order.

It is unclear if Wan-Bissaka is open to the move to the Middle East at this stage in his career. The summer exodus to the Gulf State has been tempered by players reportedly regretting the move.

Jordan Henderson’s disappointing spell at Al-Ettifaq and subsequent move to Ajax is a spectre many players cannot ignore.

United could be open to a sale as the club prepares for a new era under the INEOS transfer overseers. 

The club has been going through upheaval in the executive offices, and those changes will extend to the pitch with an overhaul of the team on the agenda.

Wan-Bissaka could be among the players to move away from the club after five years with the Red Devils.

The 26-year-old has made 177 appearances for United since his move from Crystal Palace in 2019.
