Manchester United are planning on securing 18-year-old Ivan Fresneda in the summer transfer window as per Football insider.
Doubts have been placed over the future of Aaron-Wan Bissaka despite enjoying playtime under Erik ten Hag when Dalot Diogo suffered an injury during his time with the national team. The Portuguese international, however, has featured in the last two games with Bissaka returning to his backup role at Old Trafford.
There have been reports suggesting that the 25-year-old could be on his way out in the next transfer window with Crystal Palace, Wolves and West Ham showing interest. United are also said to be open to selling the English international and with all eyes set on Ivan Fresneda, it may well be the case.

It remains to be seen what decision Erik ten Hag takes regarding the right-back position at United but the summer transfer window might bring clarity to the matter for many years to come.
