Although we have seen some movement on the left-side of defense with Alex Telles moving to Sevilla for a season loan deal, and the signing of Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord, we cannot say the same of the opposite side of the pitch. At the moment, Diogo Dalot, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Ethan Laird are the options that Erik ten Hag has at his disposal.

This past week there have been talks between Manchester United and Watford about a possible loan deal for this season. The player is still very young and the club counts with him for the future as they believe he could be a starter in future years. In spite of this, they also know he needs to play more regularly, so a loan could only be beneficial for everyone.

It has been reported by The Athletic’s, Laurie Whitwell that a club asked for Diogo Dalot earlier in the summer. To what United answered that they would only be interested to sell Wan-Bissaka, as Dalot is more of the linking of Erik ten Hag. The English right-back has been linked with a move back to Crystal Palace, but their manager, Patrick Vieira, would not talk about other clubs’ players.

By the looks of it, Diogo Dalot will play over Aaron Wan-Bissaka this season after the Portuguese full-back left a better impression on Erik ten Hag during pre-season. However, it has been reported that the Dutch manager would be interested in bringing his former Ajax player, Sergiño Dest.
