Ole Gunnar Solskjær is looking for young talent, especially in defence and his next recruit could possibly be Norwich City’s Max Aarons.
With Antonio Valencia departing the Red Devil’s and an inexperienced Diogo Dalot at the back, it’s clear that United need some more options for their back four. 19-year-old Aarons is on Solskjær’s radar but Norwich shouldn’t and probably won’t let him go.
Aarons is contracted to Norwich until 2023 and he has asked to wear the number 2 shirt next season as he goes into his first Premier League season. He hasn’t yet given Norwich any indication that he wants to leave, and the Canaries have explained how they will try not to overspend following their promotion but are equally determined to keep their best players.
Here’s why I think they should keep Aarons…
He’s a product of Luton Town’s youth. However, seeing as he’s been with Norwich since 2016, they should take the credit for his past couple of years progress and keep him going into a new league. He helped them gain promotion and they will have to play teams like United next season. Instead of selling their best players to new competition, they should be proud of the team that got them promoted and keep them.
In March 2019, Aarons was named in the Championship team of the season for 2018/19, and he even won EFL young player of the season in the same year. This has got to give Norwich something to shout about and give an exciting prospect as they move into the highest tier of English football.
