Erik ten Hag is said to want to bring another full back to share the role with Diogo Dalot.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka‘s future remains uncertain, with him yet to feature this season.
The Englishman’s lack of technical ability could be a hindrance in Ten Hag’s system.
Wan Bissaka’s biggest asset is his one-on-one defending, and he suits teams who play a deeper line.
United are slowly developing into a possession-based side under Ten Hag, and many believe that the 24 year old would be a misfit.
Arias could be an interesting option to replace Wan-Bissaka.
The Columbian is a seasoned pro, winning multiple titles with Atletico Madrid.
He recently spent time on loan at Granada before becoming a free agent in the summer.
Dalot’s performances have been brilliant this season, so if Arias does move to United, it would be as a bench player.
Journalist Johnson Saenz, the player, has already packed his bags and is ready to make his move to Old Trafford.
He will reportedly sign a two-year deal worth seven million euros.
