Man Utd Double winner Parker: Wan-Bissaka better than Dalot; loan move a positive

Manchester United Double winner Paul Parker can see Aaron Wan-Bissaka moving out on-loan next season.

Wan-Bissaka has been tipped to grow as a player if he joined Atletico Madrid on loan.

Roma and old club Crystal Palace have also been linked with the 24-year-old, who has lost his regular United place to Diogo Dalot.

Ex-Red Devils defender Paul Parker told MyBettingSites: "If he is gonna go to Spain, which is more technical and help improve him, go to play for Atletico Madrid.

"The one thing Atletico would love is that he ain't gonna need much coaching about how to defend in one against one.

"He would learn a little bit more about unity within a back four in a traditional sense.

"Hopefully, he won't come back too ill-disciplined, cause there's always a chance when you go and play for Atletico Madrid for (Diego) Simeone. The way they play.

"But I think if it is going to happen, it will serve him well to go there and maybe to come back.

"It might be a really good move for him just to go on and play in that league. Maybe it will be a good learning process for him."

Parker continued: "Because after what's going on at Manchester United, in the way the press talks about him, he's been made a little bit of a scapegoat, to be perfectly honest.

"If I look at it, is Dalot a better player than Wan-Bissaka? No, he's not.

"No way, all-around, you're better off with Wan-Bissaka there than with Dalot, 'cause when you look at some things first and foremost you want a right-back who can defend and they haven't got that."
