Crystal Palace reject Manchester United's Wan Bissaka bid

Share

We'll have to wait and see how Crystal Palace respond once United's reported new offer is put on the table but Wan-Bissaka would be an excellent signing if they could get a deal over the line this summer.

According to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, the Red Devils have agreed a five-year contract with the 21-year-old.

Wan-Bissaka is now with Aidy Boothroyd's England Under-21 squad preparing for the European Championships in Italy and San Marino.

Manchester United are heavily linked with England worldwide and Crystal Palace star Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Wan-Bissaka is under contract with the Eagles until 2022 and has said he's happy to remain at the club next season, putting Palace in a strong bargaining position.

They failed to sign him when Jose Mourinho was in charge last summer and they now face competition from Manchester City if they still want to bring him in.

United now possess the likes of Matteo Darmian, Diogo Dalot and Ashley Young for the right-back role but the former appears set to secure an exit this summer.

The Red Devils may pursue the signing of either Kieran Trippier or Thomas Meunier of Paris Saint-Germain if they fail to secure the services of Wan-Bissaka in the summer.

While last year, the 21-year-old was outstanding for the Eagles in his first full campaign at Selhurst Park.

Chelsea have been following his progress but will need to win their appeal against a transfer ban to launch a move.

Wan-Bissaka made three assists in 35 games in the Premier League in the 2018-19 season.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth star Fraser, 25, is a new name to be linked with Old Trafford and is also understood to be interesting Arsenal.
