The return of top flight domestic football is edging ever closer, with the Premier League set to kick off again on Boxing Day. 

Prior to that, several Premier League clubs will be in action in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, with Manchester City’s game against Liverpool the pick of the ties.

However, with the World Cup final taking place just two days before some of the fourth round ties, several teams are expected to field weakened line-ups for the cup fixtures.

Another top flight side that will be in action is Manchester United, who host Championship leaders Burnley.

One player that may be in line for a rare start is Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has fallen almost entirely out of favour at Old Trafford.

The defender hasn’t started a single league game for United so far this season, and new reports suggest he could be on his way out of the club very soon.

According to 90min, United expect the full-back to leave the club during the upcoming January transfer window.

The 25-year-old has become an outcast at the club under new boss Erik ten Hag, with Portugal international Diogo Dalot becoming first choice right-back.

Wan-Bissaka has played just four minutes of first team football so far this term

Wan-Bissaka cost United £50 million when he joined the club from Crystal Palace back in 2019.

He played regularly for the first two seasons of his spell with The Red Devils, but he has fallen out of favour and his time at Old Trafford now looks to be coming to an end.

Previously, the defender has been linked with a return to Selhurst Park, however United are still considering how to replace the player.

Tyrell Malacia, who joined over the summer, has been used as a makeshift right-back, but The Red Devils have also been linked with the likes of Denzel Dumfries and Jeremie Frimpong, and they could move for a new signing in January.

In total, Wan-Bissaka has made 127 appearances for United, providing ten assists.

United have several players, including Marcus Rashford and David de Gea, set to be out of contract next summer, so they may have to prioritise recruitment in other areas.
