According to Fabrizio Romeo’s exclusive CaughtOffside column via Substack, the Red Devils aren’t currently in negotiations with Sergino Dest Barcelona defender, however, they are open to offers for Wan Bissaka.
Crystal palace have expressed an interest in resigning the 24-year old, who has had a difficult time since moving to Old Trafford from Selhurst Park three years ago. Romano said that
is not in talks at the moment. However, this is one worth keeping an eye on. Man Utd may be looking for someone like Dest to replace Wan Bissaka if he moves on. Romano said that there has been some speculation about Manchester United and USA international. Romano also explained that it is possible they might be open to signing a new right back at some point. However, this will depend on Aaron Wan Bissaka’s future.
“At this moment Man United have not opened talks for Dest. They expect offers for Wan Biska – Crystal Palace had made contact but there have been no formal negotiations.
Wan Biskaka is not a viable option for United in the long-term. Diogo Dalot looks the better option right now.
Erik ten Hag is sure to be aware of the possibility that Dest could be a good upgrade. However, Dest worked for USA international while he was at Ajax.
Det hasn’t lived up to his expectations at Barca. However, it would be fascinating to see if he can revive his career in Premier League.
