Having failed to capture Jose Mourinho’s choice players in the previous summer, club manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer fears United risk losing their top targets if they do not learn from their past mistakes.
Manchester United are tracking Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka whom they presently value at £40m.
In a turn of events, however, Crystal Palace rejected the Red Devils offer as they believe the right back is worth nothing less than £60m.
United coach Solksjaer is keen on finding the right player to cement the right back position following Antonio Valencia’s departure, leaving Diago Dalot as the only natural right back in the team.
United, though, feel Wan-Bisakka is not worth that much and have not made a counter offer following Palace’s rejection. Their manager is believed to have sent them warning signals that they risk paying more for the player if they do not act fast or they could lose him altogether
Solksjaer believes the player’s value would keep increasing as the transfer window lingers and several top European clubs vye for his signature, as claimed by the Metro.
United are prepared to send an improved offer but below the £60m valuation of the player by Palace. If the club rejects this new offer, the Red Devils will be looking elsewhere to solve their right back problem.
