Manchester United have discussed signing Norwich right-back Max Aarons but they may delay a possible bid until the end of the season, according to reports in the UK.
It was believed that the £30m rated defender would be a target for the January transfer window and supporters on Twitter are not pleased that the Red Devils are seemingly dragging their heels:
Stop being silly united. Get this kid like now

Aaron is a very good young player. He can be a very good competitor for AWB

United have always been rather slow when it comes to completing deals and the need to sign a new right-back is arguably quite urgent considering the poor form of Aaron Wan-Bissaka in recent months.
Competition for the 23-year-old is badly needed so signing a young, hungry, attack-minded defender like Aarons this month would make a lot of sense.
The Canaries star has been linked with the likes of Bayern Munich and if he does have a good second half of the season, there could be a lot more teams in for him next summer. Whether that prospect will force United to make a move for the right-back earlier than that, we shall see.
