Manchester United are likely to end their 2020-21 season with a sense of satisfaction. They are currently second in the Premier League and will hope to at least remain there until the end of the season. They are also in the semi-finals of the Europa League, which is a great chance for them to finally lift a trophy under Solskjaer.

Then, there is another summer transfer window, where the Red Devils are expected to improve their squad even further as the ultimate of the club must be to return to the top of the English game.

Manchester United appear to have many targets this summer. Signing a right-back could very possibly be one of them. They currently have Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has been the undisputed starter this season. Brandon Williams is another one capable of playing there but has not been given too many chances this season.

Rumours have suggested that Manchester United are interested in Norwich City full-back Max Aarons. However, they are not the only ones interested in signing the English youngster this summer.

Everton leading the race for the Manchester United transfer target

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted out that Everton are “leading the race” for Norwich City’s 21-year-old right-back Max Aarons. He claims that the talks over a potential summer transfer between the two clubs are ongoing and The Toffees hope to reach an agreement soon:

Should Everton win the race and land Aarons in the summer, it would be a blow for the Red Devils. The club have been linked with the youngster for years now.

An academy graduate of the Canaries, Aarons has featured in 128 matches, according to stats from Transfermarkt, at the age of 21 for Norwich City’s first-team.

Having played 45 games this season, he has helped them gain Premier League promotion, garnering two goals and four assists across all competitions in the process of doing so.

The right-back also has the experience of already playing in the Premier League as well. Thus, it is not hard to see why so many clubs are believed to be interested in signing him this summer.
