Diogo Dalot had firmly established himself as Ten Hag's right back before the World Cup break. Ten Hag, like Ralf Rangnick, had Ten Hag's right wing covered by a Portuguese fullback, and Ten Hag delivered; Solskjaer had Dalot covered.
Despite Dalot's ability to play United's right back for years to come, Ten Hag remains concerned about the position.Dalot has no competition for his spot because the Dutch tactician doesn't trust Aaron Wan Bissaka, who is supposed to be an option at right back. This makes it difficult to rest Dalot and also puts United's right wing at risk if Dalot were to get hurt.
The goal of United's January transfer window was to acquire a solid right back. Intriguingly, according to The Sun, United are closing in on Bayer Leverkusen star Jeremie Frimpong. The 21-year-old is a force to be reckoned with on the right wing in the Bundesliga, and Ten Hag is eager to sign him for his plan to revitalise Manchester United.
"Man Utd ‘close in on Jeremie Frimpong transfer with Bayer Leverkusen right-back open to January move." writes the Sun.
