Diogo Dalot is expected to deputise temporarily, while Alvaro Fernandez is another option, although the 20-year-old is yet to make any senior appearance for the Red Devils.
According to the Daily Express, Man United are weighing up whether to sign a short-term solution to solve their issue at left-back and are already targeting Bertrand.
The 34-year-old, who won the UEFA Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League with Chelsea, is available on a free transfer after leaving Leicester City this summer.
The report claims United have held initial discussions with Bertrand’s representatives over a possible move to Old Trafford.
When asked about the possibility of signing a new left-back before the close of the transfer window, Ten Hag said this week: ‘If there are good opportunities, yes.
‘It has to be the right player. Otherwise we have to deal with the current squad.
‘And as I said before, we went through the scenarios before the season, in our transfer strategy, and if it happened we have the solution.’
