If Solskjaer has decided three at the back is the way to go, then where exactly does this leave Wan-Bissaka? Hopefully, for his own confidence and sanity, not at right-wing back.
In the summer, Manchester United were regularly linked with Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier. The England right-wing-back, who has regularly featured in a back three for England and for Diego Simeone’s side, has even said to the Daily Mail he wants to return to the Premier League.
United cooled their interest in the former Tottenham Hotspur defender in the summer after Diogo Dalot’s impressive pre-season for the Reds, according to the Athletic.
Yet, Wan Bissaka was still deployed ahead of the Portuguese star. In fact, further insights from the Athletic have even claimed £73m star Jadon Sancho has been trialled as a right-wing-back in recent training sessions, such is Solskjaer’s insistence on the new formation.
