The transfer window is up and running with several clubs making moves to strengthen their squads ahead of next season.
One major transfer that has been reported by the media is that of England defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United.
The 21-year-old is believed to be the top priority target for Manchester United following the release of Antonio Valencia in June.
The Guardian reports that Manchester United have seen an initial offer of £40 million rejected by Crystal Palace.
According to the report, the Eagles are not just demanding a transfer fee of £50 million for the right back, they are insisting the 20% sell-on clause inserted in Wilfried Zaha’s contract be removed.
Zaha is valued at £80m, hence Man United could make up to £16m if any club meets Palace’s valuation of the striker.
Wan-Bissaka stock is high following his excellent performances in the just concluded Premier League campaign.
His ability to make attacking runs as well as his defensive attributes makes the England u21 international an attractive prospect for the Old Trafford outfit.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge fan of the player and has instructed the club’s transfer chiefs to finalise a deal with Crystal Palace.
From the looks of things, negotiations are still ongoing with a deal likely to be struck by both parties in the coming days.
Wan-Bissaka is a quality defender that can bring a long-term solution to Manchester United fullback issues.
