Manchester United receive transfer boost with Norwich chief open to Max Aarons sale

Manchester United have received a boost in the pursuit of Max Aarons with Norwich City sporting director Stuart Webber open to selling him at the right price this summer.

The 21-year-old was on the radar of several elite European teams after the Canaries’ relegation from the Premier League last term, but the club managed to keep hold of his services.

Aarons has been ever-present for the Canaries in the Championship this season and he has contributed one goal and three assists in his 28 league appearances.

In a recent interview with The Athletic, Webber has revealed that the club don’t face the compulsion to sell their first-team stars including Aarons, Emiliano Buendia and Todd Cantwell, but admitted that they are open to the right offers.

United are known to be admirers of the young full-back and it has recently been reported that Aarons could be an option for them with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanting competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Wan-Bissaka is currently the best defensive right-back in the Premier League, but he has not been able to provide the creativity going forward on a consistent basis.

Aarons was priced at around £20m prior to the January transfer window, but he could come at a much higher cost, should the Canaries return to the top-flight at the first time of asking.

The club are presently top of the standings, but they have lost valuable points in recent weeks. They have registered two draws and one defeat from the last three games.

They are currently one point ahead of Brentford and two in front of Swansea City. However, both of those clubs have a game in hand over them and are in better form at the moment.
