Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their efforts to sign Sergino Dest as the Barcelona defender has reportedly signed a season deal with AC Milan.
Erik ten Hag would like to sign a new right back before the transfer period closes and was previously manager of Dest at Ajax.
United have also been linked with transfers from Bayern Munich’s Benjamin Pavard and Borussia Dortmund’s Thomas Meunier.
Sergino Dest’s loan to AC Milan is reportedly ‘100 percent ready’ for his medical
According to Fabrizio Romano“Dest will not be going to Old Trafford as his loan spell to Milan is ‘100 percent ready’.
The journalist adds that Dest will fly to Italy this morning for his medical check-up, while the Serie A squad will have the option to buy the 21-year-old for £17.3million next summer.
Dest has played 72 games for Barcelona since moving from Ajax to Nou Camp in 2020, but was kept out of the squad by Xavi for the first three LaLiga games of this season.
It comes as a blow to Erik ten Hag, who wanted to contract the wing defender he coached at Ajax
As a 17-cap international from the US, he is keen to play football regularly ahead of the World Cup in November.
It concludes a busy period for reigning Serie A champions Milan, who have also attracted the likes of Charles De Ketelaere, Divock Origi and Alessandro Florenzi.
For United, it means they have to make do with Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka until at least January.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been linked with leaving Manchester United after being thrown overboard
Wan-Bissaka has been linked with a departure from Old Trafford after being ousted by Ten Hag, but the Dutch boss has indicated the 24-year-old will remain with the club beyond today’s deadline.
“Aaron has shown in the past that he is a constant factor at United,” said Ten Hag. ‘I have faith in him. I didn’t see him that often because he was injured in preparation for a long period of time. I didn’t have the chance to see him.
“From what I’ve heard and what I’ve noticed from the past, he’s a good option. He has trained and has to compete for the position.’
