Manchester United have been joined by Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the race for the Norwich City right-back Max Aaronaccording 90 minutes (h/t Manchester Evening News).

Football Insider (h/t MEN) claims the Red Devils are interested in acquiring the 22-year-old signing. And now the Old Trafford side will have to fight with Spurs for the Canaries defender.

The former Crystal Palace star was a regular starter under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norway head coach preferred the England U21 international over the other squad options.

However, with Ole’s departure in the previous campaign, Wan-Bissaka lost his place in the team. The 24-year-old was overtaken by Diogo Dalot in the pecking order.

Former caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick gave Portugal international opportunities in the team. And while he didn’t do anything special last season, the former FC Porto player apparently did enough to convince Erik ten Hag.

scupper has started every game for the Red Devils in the current campaign. Some fans believe the 23-year-old is the team’s most improved player since the 2021/22 season.

Aarons has been at Norwich for his entire senior career. The 22-year-old has been one of their standout players over the years. And the England U21 international has been a regular for the Canaries in the Championship and Premier League.

Dalot had, until now, no one to compete and offer him a reinforcement. However, with a long campaign ahead, it would be wise for United to strengthen the right-back spot. Whether Aarons is the chosen one remains to be seen.
