Man Utd is interested in Norwich City defender Max Aarons

The right-back has played every game for the Canaries this season, while trying to promote back to the Premier League.

Manchester United are interested in Norwich City right-back Max Aarons, but it is understood that a deal in the January transfer window seems unlikely.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is evaluating the 20-year-old defender, and the club has considered the possibility of a move during the summer window, but nothing has ever materialized.

An agreement was discussed with United looking to bring more competition to Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has been at the club for just over a year, on the right side of defense.

Diogo Dalot, who also plays in this position, was sent on loan to AC Milan at the start of the current campaign, and Solskjaer was allowed to play Victor Lindelof on the right wing in the recent draw against Leicester in the league.

It is understood that Aarons is open for a potential move and United have discussed the possibility of a transfer. However, there are a few different factors why it is unlikely.

He has started all 22 matches in Norwich’s league this season as he tries to return to the Premier League and has established himself as a regular in the team, while the overall fee was a problem when thinking of a move in summer window.

But while United expect to have a relatively quiet winter window, with the club preferring to do business in the summer, there should be at least one reception, as Amad Diallo is expected to arrive from Atalanta.

The club agreed a deal for the 18-year-old in the summer window, but remained in Italy before moving in January.

Brexit means that the new rules governing the signing of overseas players will come into force after December 31, but the club is confident that they will be able to complete the signing, which was agreed in October, before the teenager moves in the coming weeks.

Another young player in which the club has registered its interest is Moises Caicedo. It is understood that United have explored a transfer for the 19-year-old midfielder from Independiente del Valle, but, unlike reports in South America, they have not agreed on a deal for the teenager.

Transfer funds are available for Solskjaer in this window, but United will only move for players if there are summer targets that become available at the right price.
