Manchester United remain open to sign coveted Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka. However, The Eagles are not going to let him go that easily and according to recent reports, they have rejected a second proposal from The Red Devils.
Indeed, The Eagles have rejected a bid worth up to £50 million from Manchester United for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to Sky Sports. It’s no secret that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants the 21-year-old defender to improve the team’s defence, but it seems United won’t have another alternative than accepting Palace’s demands to sell the player.
Palace are looking to receive a £50m fee for the defender, although they’d like it to be paid upfront. United’s offer was a £35m upfront payment with £15m in several add-ons to be paid further down the contract.
Considering Diogo Dalot still needs to adjust to the Premier League, the release of Antonio Valencia and the fact Ashley Young will be 34 next season, adding Wan-Bissaka into the mix seems like a perfect move from The Red Devils. Especially since the club’s new policy is to recruit young British talent – and Wan-Bissaka fits that mold perfectly.
Which side will break their current stance in order to make the deal a reality? By all accounts, it seems Manchester United will have to submit another bid since Palace won’t let their star defender go that easily.
