Graeme Souness Claims Manchester United's Aaron Wan-Bissaka Is Not Worth £50 Million Transfer Fee
That's according to Graeme Souness, who says the 22-year-old has to improve his overall game to become the complete package.
He has recorded the most tackles (109) and the most blocks (87) for Manchester United in 2019/20 but the right-back has only recorded two assists this season, which pales in comparison to the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold (12) and Andy Robertson (7) respectively.
"The stats say that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is one of the Premier League's top tacklers, but should he not be a bit more than that for £50 million?" he wrote in a column for The Times.
"Should he not be the complete package as a right back at that price? He's good defensively and one on one, but it's the other end of the game, which is so important for a full back now, that he's not so good at, namely getting into the last third and delivering the right ball.

"I'd also like to see him stay on his feet more, rather than lunging into last-minute challenges.
"I'd rather have a defender who anticipates danger and deals with it without having to go on their backside all the time, which tells me you're not reading the game, than the top tackler.
"The minute you go to ground today, fouls will be given against you.
"Tackling is basically not allowed any more, it's discouraged in modern football and that trend is only going to continue."
