Saturday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot, Ousmane Dembele

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Saturday, November 28.

A frustrating summer transfer window has now closed with Manchester United having missed out on a number of their top targets, including Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils were busy on deadline day, though, bringing in Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri, in addition to agreeing a deal to sign Amad Traore in January. Attention will now switch to other business they may do when the window reopens in the winter.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Saturday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'want to sign a new right-back'

Manchester United are reportedly keen to bring a new right-back to the club in 2021 to provide competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 23-year-old has impressed defensively for the Red Devils since arriving from Crystal Palace in 2019 but has struggled to contribute in an attacking sense.

According to ESPN, the 20-time English champions believe that Wan-Bissaka is lacking competition for a starting role and want to bring a new right-back to Old Trafford in either January or next summer.

The report claims that United are hopeful that a new player 'will accelerate an improvement' in the former England Under-21 international's game.

Wan-Bissaka has made 58 appearances for the Red Devils since his arrival but has only contributed one goal and four assists, while he managed just four assists in 46 outings for Palace.

Diogo Dalot is currently on loan at AC Milan, but United are allegedly not interested in selling the right-back as they are confident that he will develop into a first-team player in the coming years.

Manchester United 'want to sign Ousmane Dembele on loan in January'

Manchester United are reportedly lining up a January loan move for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

The Red Devils were strongly linked with the France international over the summer but were unable to agree a deal with Ronald Koeman's side before the window closed.

The 23-year-old has been a regular for Barca this season, scoring three times and providing one assist in nine appearances in all competitions, but the World Cup winner's long-term future at Camp Nou is unclear.

Dembele's existing deal with the La Liga giants is due to expire in June 2022, and Juventus are believed to be keeping a close eye on the developments surrounding the attacker.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, United are not interested in signing the Frenchman on a permanent deal in January but will attempt to loan him for the second half of the 2020-21 campaign.

Dembele has largely struggled with injuries since arriving at Camp Nou but has now been involved in Barca's last five La Liga matches, playing the full 90 minutes against Atletico Madrid last weekend.
