Danny Mills thinks Manchester United should sell Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer to boost the club’s summer transfer kitty.

Wan-Bissaka, 24, was signed by United in 2019 for £ 50m but has disappointed at right-back with his lackluster attacking criticism.

The Red Devils are missing out on the top four this season, and future manager Erik ten Hag will reportedly only have a budget of £ 50 million with which he can overtake the squad.

Mills, the former Manchester City defender, believes Wan-Bissaka is not good enough for United and says Ten Hag should look into cashing in the defender while the Dutchman wants to raise money for transfers.

Talking to Football Insider, He said: ‘You could probably pull in £ 20 million with Wan-Bissaka. If you add it to the transfer kit, it’s up to £ 70 million, which could probably be stretched to £ 120 million realistically.

“Look at it, people thought he would be England’s next right-back for a long time and would be a great defender.

‘But I think we’ve seen him not at the level where he wants to go on to win a Premier League and make a difference in the Champions League. Maybe Man United was just a little too much for him. ‘

Since being signed by Ole Gunnar Solskjær three years ago from Crystal Palace, Wan-Bissaka’s career at Old Trafford has gradually fallen by the wayside.

A strong first season made him play 35 Premier League matches as he was part of a defense that conceded just three goals more than champions Liverpool.

However, a drop in performance has resulted in the Englishman losing his starting place to Diogo Dalot during this period and he has only played 20 league games.

An abundance of opportunities as a right-back for England means he has yet to make his Three Lions debut and has not been called up by Gareth Southgate since 2019.
