Man Utd eyeing Norwich fullback Max Aarons

Manchester United are eyeing Norwich City fullback Max Aarons.

The Mirror says United have identified Norwich's teen-talent Aarons as a cheaper alternative to Crystal Palace starlet Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

United are considering the other names on their shortlist of targets to fill their right-back berth because of Palace's insistence on £50million up front for Wan-Bissaka.

Palace have rejected an offer of £35million up front, plus £15million in add-ons, and United feel Aarons could provide much better value.

Aarons, 19, who is under contract at Carrow Road until 2023, is valued at around £15million and is an England Under-19 international.
