Wolves: Graeme Bailey claims Wan-Bissaka could still be sold in January

Wolves target Aaron Wan-Bissaka could still be sold in January despite his revival in form at Manchester United, Graeme Bailey has claimed.

What’s the word?

The defender looked set to depart Old Trafford, having barely appeared before the World Cup, but has played well since, covering for Diogo Dalot.

A number of clubs are interested in the full-back, including Wolves, but given his resurgence in form the chances of a deal may have worsened.

However, if United bring in a right-back during the window, they still could let Wan-Bissaka go, but they may ask for a higher price now given his improvement.

Speaking on the Talking Transfers Podcast, Bailey explained that United could still part ways with the defender despite reports indicating that they would happily keep him.

“They’ll obviously continue looking for a right-back, I think, if they managed to sell Wan-Bissaka, which I still think they want to do,” Bailey stated.

“Wolves wanted him, I think they still do. I think it’s a good move, if they don’t want him, if they don’t want to pay his wages, United will keep him. I think it’s quite a clever move.”

A deal can be done

This may come as a boost to Julen Lopetegui, as it means that there is still hope a deal can be done.

Hope may have been lost once he earned praise for his performances and proved that he can provide solid cover for Dalot, but this indicates that despite this improvement, United will l0ok to offload Wan-Bissaka, who has been hailed as “magnificent”, and bring in a fresh face.

1. Wolves kick-started 2022 with an impressive win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, who scored the winner?

Wolves may face competition from Wan-Bissaka’s former club Crystal Palace, whom he played for before his £50m move to United, but if they manage to land the right-back, they will be getting a player in good form ready to hit the ground running.
