Man United star deserves a new contract after excellent FA Cup performance

Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka delivered a splendid performance during the 2-1 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

The 26-year-old’s future has been a regular topic of discussion in recent months. His current contract expires in June next year which has led to speculation that he could be sold this summer.

However, this could change on the back of his fantastic display at Wembley Stadium.

Wan-Bissaka is one of the best right-backs in one-on-one situations. He showed his class by keeping Jeremy Doku at bay for most of the second half.

The Belgian managed just one key pass into the box for Phil Foden who fumbled his effort. His goal from outside the box was due to an Andre Onana error.

Wan-Bissaka registered two successful tackles and three interceptions. He blocked two shots, made four clearances and won three duels.

The Crystal Palace graduate also made three recoveries. His performance was reminiscent of the one he produced against Newcastle United in the League Cup final last season.

Wan-Bissaka is currently one of the lower earners on £90,000 per week. The hierarchy should decide to keep him with a new long-term deal.

Diogo Dalot could return to right back next term when the left-back injury crisis is sorted, but Wan-Bissaka would be a handy back-up with his strong defensive skills.

However, if Wan-Bissaka is not prepared to accept a reduced role, he could be sold during the next transfer window.
