Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the plans for Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka ahead of the upcoming season.

With Antonio Valencia moving on in the summer, the Red Devils are poised to enter the next season with Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right wing.

As it stands, the £50m signing from Crystal Palace is set to start as our first choice right-back, but where does that leave Diogo Dalot? And also what about Ashley Young?

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was inquired about the situation regarding the right-backs before the pre-season tour to Singapore and here’s what the gaffer said:

“We’re trying to build a squad that can have a long life,” Solskjaer explained. “And with Diogo and Aaron we have got two right-backs that will be very good players.

“Diogo can play right wing and has probably gone from right-back to being able to play right wing. And Aaron has been right wing that can play right-back.

“They can give us good options on the right and Ashley can play both sides, he’s played in the World Cup last summer for England at left-back and he can push Luke and Aaron and Diogo, no bother.”

From a 33-year-old Ashley Young starting week-in week-out and getting destroyed by average Premier League wingers on the right wing, we have already come a long way in a couple of months, haven’t we?

Of course, Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be our first choice right-back going into the new season, but as the gaffer explained, Diogo Dalot, while a capable back-up to Wan-Bissaka, could also fill in on the right-wing or even the left-back position, if and when required.

With Luke Shaw also doing well on left, it seems like finally, we are pretty set on the wing-back positions. Now, about finding a partner for Victor Lindelof…

    Its unbelievable that Solskjaer can contemplate playing Young. He has been a good servant to the club but his time has come to an end. It showed against Leeds and last season he doesn’t have the energy anymore to make a break when he has an open pitch in front of him. Against Leeds he received the ball on the left side with an open pitch in front. Did he break No he slowed down stopped then played it backwards to a centre half
    He either didnt have either the energy or confidence to go forward.
