100% tackles won, 93% pass accuracy: New signing continues to dazzle

Aaron Wan-Bissaka once again gave a faultless defensive performance during Manchester United’s pre-season win over Kristiansund in Oslo.

The right-back, signed a month ago for a fee of £45m, has been a standout performer over pre-season and delighted supporters with his tackling.

His performance against the Norwegian side was militantly organised, packed with energy and dutiful execution from start to finish as nobody went past him.

Wan-Bissaka’s numbers from the game reflect what was another imposing display alongside his new teammates.

Pre-season is all about fitness, as anyone who actually does pre-season will tell you, which makes you wonder why Wan-Bissaka even bothered to turn up.

From pretty much day one, the 21-year-old has played with the kind of intensity and application you’d expect in, say, November of a Premier League season.

Quietly and assuredly, one of the scoops of the summer is bedding himself into that right-back spot.
