Manchester United are considering allotting £10m for Rangers right-back Nathan Patterson in a bid for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
90min.com reports that Patterson has attracted a lot of interest from several clubs. Previously, it was Everton who have been closely watched, most recently Manchester United, who have been involved in the 19-year-old right-back.
News reports indicate that Manchester United are still looking for a new right-back to add to the army. To pressure the position of Wan – Bissaka. After the summer transfer market has failed to grab the right-back Kieran Trippier. The English national team of Atletico Madrid, called for too high.
For Patterson, contracted to Rangers until 2024, he is regarded as a promising youngster in Scottish football. He has now made three appearances for Steve Clarke’s senior national team in 2021, despite being just 19 years old.
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has previously criticized Everton. That for making a joke of making a £5m bid for Patterson and was rejected without mercy.
It adds United were keen on former Spurs star Kieran Trippier and that he was keen to come. But Atletico Madrid’s £30m valuation bulldozed the switch.

The article says United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a new recruit to “challenge the 23-year-old rather than just replace him.”
