Norwich City believe they can recoup as much as £35million by selling Manchester United target Max Aarons this summer, having rejected a bid of around £20m from Serie A giants Roma.

The England U21 international had been expected to leave Carrow Road last summer following the Canaries’ relegation but the club managed to keep the 21-year-old following an impressive campaign in the Premier League.

Bayern Munich have shown interest in Aarons and Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber hinted at interest from the Bundesliga giants earlier this year.

‘The only interest was in Max. No other players,’ said Webber.

‘We decided not to act on that interest, with Max’s blessing I must add, because it was from abroad and wouldn’t have been quite right for him and definitely wasn’t right for us at that time.

‘It was about keeping the squad together.’

However, while Aarons had been keen to stay, Norwich are realistic about their chances of keeping him even if they manage promotion back to the Premier League.

The Sun claim the Championship side have rejected a £20m offer from Roma and that they will wait until the summer before putting Aarons on the open market.

The Canaries believe they can get as much as £35m for the full-back and Aarons’ desire to stay in England could put United at the front of the queue.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to sign competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, as he’s convinced that Luke Shaw’s form this season is down to the presence of Alex Telles since his arrival from Porto.

Aarons is also more adept in forward positions, which is an area of Wan-Bissaka’s game that United are keen to improve.
