Man Utd, and Bayern Munich target Max Aarons confirms transfer approaches – and Norwich star reveals how you say surname

MAX AARONS almost had more talking to do off the pitch than on it as his Norwich  recorded a seventh straight victory.

The Canaries right-back spoke to the media after the table-toppers’ latest success and ended up discussing a range of subjects including club, country — and even how to pronounce his surname.

Mind you, the England Under-21 international is probably used to being the centre of discussion.

Late last summer Barcelona made a move for him and he has continued to attract lots of interest.

Fellow giants Bayern Munich are a long-term admirer, while Manchester United have watched him.

And last month a SunSport exclusive revealed Roma had a huge bid turned down by Canaries supremo Stuart Webber.

Aarons, 21, said: “Stuart said there was an offer and we all sat down and spoke about it.

“We decided it wasn’t the best fit at that time. I didn’t want to let it become a distraction and neither did anyone from the club.

“As soon as it was there we spoke about it and then it was done and it was straight on to getting more wins.

“As a player you expect to be in the loop. It is about you, so it’s important for everyone to be on the same page.”


Aarons has also emerged as a target for Jamaica.

But he said: “I’m fully focussed on England Under-21s at the moment. We’ve got big European Championship coming up.

“I had a few  family members from Jamaica messaging me, and I just had to say, ‘Listen, I haven’t heard anything’.

“It’s Dad’s side of the family. My cousin Rolando, who is at Huddersfield, is in the process of maybe making a decision.”

Aarons also cleared up how his surname should be pronounced.

He said: “Air-uns, that’s how everyone says it in my family.”
