‘He’s Right About Something For Once’ – United Fans Back Crooks’ Comments That 21 Year Old Is A “Must” Signing This Summer

Garth Crooks chose Crystal Palace fullback Aaron Wan-Bissaka in his team of the week following his performance in the 1-0 win over Newcastle last weekend.

In addition to praising the 21-year-old’s performance, the TV pundit also said that he thinks Manchester United should go after him in the summer:

“I’ve gone for my young player of the season, Aaron Wan-Bissaka. He was superb yet again against Newcastle. This fabulous talent has not looked back since his Premier League debut at Fulham at the start of the season. This kid is a must for Manchester United.”

Supporters on social media were mostly in agreement with the comments, with some saying that it was the most sensible thing Crooks has said for a while:

A couple of fans are not quite as sure:

Multiple reports have linked United with a move for Wan-Bissaka but considering the Red Devils already have a young right-back in Diogo Dalot, there have to be question marks over whether it is a priority signing.

With Matteo Darmian expected to leave in the summer, the squad is arguably weaker at left-back with Luke Shaw not having an obvious understudy. Ashley Young could perhaps be used as backup in that role with Wan-Bissaka competing with Dalot on the right-hand side.
