Man Utd Set To Complete $55m Move For Wan-Bissaka
Manchester United are confident of signing highly rated Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
According to reports, the defender will have a medical at United’s Carrington training facility upon his return from international duty with England’s Under-21 side following their early exit from this summer’s European Championship tournament in Italy.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bolster his squad for the new season.
He has identified 21-year-old Wan-Bissaka, who is currently on England Under-21 duty in Italy, as having the youth and speed he is looking for.
It has been suggested Palace want around £50m for the Croydon-born defender, who joined the Palace academy when he was 11 and made his first team debut in 2018.
Solskjaer said earlier this summer that he wanted his transfer business completed early in the window but, with his players due to report for training on 1 July, so far, the only new arrival has been Wales winger Daniel James, 21, who was signed from Swansea earlier this month for £15m.
