Man United could lose Isak Hansen-Aaroen to Man City

Manchester United may lose Isak Hansen-Aaroen to rivals Manchester City.

The 19-year-old has trained with the Man United first-team numerous times under Erik ten Hag.

He was involved in their pre-season games against Olympique Lyon, Wrexham and Leeds United.

The teenager was reportedly promised a chance to impress and was not allowed to participate in the Under-19 European Championships for the same reason.

However, Hansen-Aaroen has found it challenging to receive substantial opportunities coming his way.

He has yet to feature in the matchday squad this season, even when the first team suffered from several injuries.

This puts a big question mark over his Man United future, considering his contract expires this summer.

His former youth international colleague, Oscar Bobb, recently scored for Man City in their Champions League game.

Hansen-Aaroen may feel that staying with United won’t benefit his career.

Pep Guardiola has often used youngsters on a big stage and made them better footballers. Phil Foden and Rico Lewis are prime examples.

Ten Hag has been ruthless in selling academy starlets who he thinks are not good enough to take the next steps.

Zidane Iqbal, Charlie Savage and Anthony Elanga were allowed to leave Old Trafford this past summer.

Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo are now Man United’s first-team regulars.

Any youngster needs to develop in a stable environment. This is something Man City can provide to Hansen-Aaroen but not the Red Devils.

The defending Premier League champions signed 16-year-old Harrison Parker from Man United recently.

The centre-back was one of United’s most highly-rated youngsters.

Ten Hag may send Hansen-Aaroen out on loan in January, but the Red Devils would prefer to tie him to a new contract before sanctioning his temporary exit.
