Manchester United should sign Max Aarons this summer, says Rio Ferdinand as Norwich right back can ‘impact the club at different levels’ – amid doubts over Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s future at Old Trafford

  • Manchester United are set for a big rebuild this summer under Erik ten Hag
  • Right back could be one area the Red Devils look to bolster during the off-season
  • Max Aarons has suffered two relegations with Norwich – including this season 

Manchester United have been urged to sign Max Aarons by Rio Ferdinand as the club look to reset under new boss Erik ten Hag.

A new era at Old Trafford began on Monday with Ten Hag officially starting his role in the hotseat.

The Dutchman has a plethora of items to get on with in his in-tray already – including recruitment with up to 10 first-team stars leaving, as detailed by Sportsmail last week.

Right back could be one position to bolster with Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s future unclear – and Ferdinand believes Norwich City’s Aarons is the perfect man for that role.

Aarons has suffered relegation twice from the top flight with the Canaries, including this season, but Ferdinand feels he could mirror ex-United defender Chris Smalling in having a long career at the club.

‘Someone like Max Aarons you could put him like a Chris Smalling-type signing where they come in and they have an impact,’ he told his Vibe with FIVE YouTube show.

‘They may not be straight starters immediately but they go and they stay there for 10 years and have a really good career and they impact the club at different levels.’

Aarons made 35 appearances in all competitions for Norwich this season.
