Aaron Wan-Bissaka has informed Crystal Palace that he wants to join Manchester United this summer.
The Eagles have rejected Manchester United’s opening offer of around £40 million for the 21-year-old and the Red Devils are already plotting their next bid which will be in the region on £50 million.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pleading with Manchester United to move closer to Palace’s £60 million asking price as he’s confident the young right-back can take over as Antonio Valencia’s replacement for the next decade.
Diogo Dalot is yet to win the manager’s trust, hence the continued and intense interest in Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has been left ‘frustrated’ by the rejected bid and has told his side that he’s desperate to secure a ‘dream’ move to Old Trafford.
However, the Englishman is yet to issue a formal transfer request at Selhurst Park. While Palace are unlikely to budge on their £60 million valuation.
Manager Roy Hodgson is scouring the market for possible replacements in the event of a deal being agreed with Manchester United.
Norwich City’s Max Aarons, who is also being monitored by Tottenham, RB Leipzig and the Red Devils, is firmly on Crystal Palace’s radar.
The Canaries have sold their key man James Maddison last year to Leciester City and the Englishman appeared to be a big hit in the Premier League attracting interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.
And it is expected that Max Aarons will have a solid career in the Premier League so the English giants are battling for the talented youngster.
