Man United & Aaron Wan-Bissaka: Price tag revealed as Man City consider transfer move

Manchester United & Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka

On Sunday, the likes of Sky Sports confirmed that Manchester United have begun attempts at signing Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka broke into the Palace first-team at the back-end of the 2017-18 season. While last year, the 21-year-old was outstanding for the Eagles in his first full campaign at Selhurst Park.

Last season, Wan-Bissaka played 35 times for the Eagles in the Premier League.

At the same time, Man United are reportedly looking to recruit a full-back after Antonio Valencia left Old Trafford.

Of course, Man United signed Diogo Dalot from Porto last summer.

So will Man United sign Wan-Bissaka?

For that to happen, the Times on Monday reveal that the Red Devils will have to up their offer:

Manchester United have failed with a £40 million bid for Aaron Wan-Bissaka after Crystal Palace valued their 21-year-old defender at closer to £65 million.

Man City & Chelsea

Another potential problem for Man United is competition in the race to sign Wan-Bissaka.

The Times note that Man City and Chelsea are both also interested in the defender.

Man City, of course, are the reigning Premier League champions, while Chelsea’s hopes of signing the Crystal Palace star are currently stifled by a transfer ban.

With that said, the Times report the following:

The Palace right back is also wanted by Chelsea and Manchester City and his club are confident of setting a higher asking price because they think that United would prefer to sign him rather than Thomas Meunier.

City registered interest as they wanted to put pressure on Kyle Walker, who has had an indifferent season. City have also been linked with João Cancelo, the Juventus full back.

So will Crystal Palace sell?

Sadly for Crystal Palace fans, it’s beginning to look like the club will cash in on some of their star assets this summer.

The Times report on the financial issues swirling around Selhurst Park:

Palace’s position could be complicated by the possibility that Josh Harris and David Blitzer, as well as other American stakeholders, will sell their shares in the club this summer.

Without investment, Palace could have to sell Wan-Bissaka or Wilfried Zaha to help to fund new signings.
