Manchester United trigger one-year Aaron Wan-Bissaka contract option

Wan-Bissaka has made 15 appearances for Manchester United this season
Manchester United have triggered a one-year option to extend Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s contract until June 2025.

The club are keen to open talks with the 26-year-old over a longer-term deal to remain at Old Trafford. However, they wanted to take pressure out of the immediate situation. Without the extension, Wan-Bissaka would have been free to talk to overseas clubs about joining them next season.

Manchester United signed Wan-Bissaka for £50m from Crystal Palace in 2019.

Club sources said more than 800 right-backs were tracked before they made the Croydon-born player their fifth most expensive signing.

However, he has struggled to make a consistent impact and even this season has often found himself left out of the starting line-up with Erik ten Hag preferring Diogo Dalot, who signed a new five-year deal in May.

Wan-Bissaka has made 15 appearances, including 11 starts, for United this season.
