Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has completed a dream move to Manchester United in a move reported worth $50m by British media.
The club announced the England under-21 right back has signed a five-year contract on their official website on Saturday.

“Aaron is one of the best upcoming defenders in the Premier League.
“He has the right work ethic, talent and mentality to play for Manchester United and he fits exactly the type of player that we are looking to bring into the squad to help us improve and push on further.
“Aaron is a young, hungry player and eager to learn and that’s important at his age.
“I am delighted he has signed with us and we look forward to continuing his tremendous development so far,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said in a statement
Wan-Bissaka, who started 35 Premier League games for Palace last season, said he was honoured to call himself a Manchester United player.
“I can’t wait to get going and integrated into the squad.“I’m looking forward to starting training with the manager and my new team mates on the pre-season tour,” he added.
