Man Utd are focused on improving their right side in the next two transfer windows.

The signing of Alex Telles from FC Porto last summer has boosted the Red Devils attacking options from the left. No United player has created more chances in the Champions League this season than the Brazilian left-back.

Luke Shaw, before he picked up a hamstring injury at Goodison Park, also looked like he has found his best form in years due to added competition from the new arrival from the Portuguese League and now it seems Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will try a similar strategy to increase Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s attacking contributions.

According to ESPN, Man Utd are looking to bring in a new signing to challenge the 23-year-old for the right-back position.

Although Wan-Bissaka has been brilliant defensively since his arrival from Crystal Palace in 2019, the Englishman has failed to made any significant impact going forward and clearly lacks the creative qualities his fellow countrymen Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James showcase for Liverpool and Chelsea respectively.

The former winger turned full-back has assisted just four times in 58 appearances for the Old Trafford outfit.

The failure to sign Jadon Sancho or any other established right winger has also affected the manager’s tactics as his side are now overly dependent on players from the left flank to create something, which in turn makes the job of opposing defenders much easier.

In a recent Champions League outing against Istanbul Basaksehir, Marcus Rashford played on the right and looked positive, however, as per aforementioned report the Premier League giants still remain keen on signing a right winger.
