According to the Sun, Manchester United prime target Aaron Wan-Bissaka has verbally requested a transfer from Crystal Palace and this has come as a massive boost for the Old Trafford faithfuls. While it is unclear if the player would join United, we have seen pictures of the player wearing our jersey.
United tabled a £40 million bid for the right back but the same was knocked back by Crystal Palace. The London club are reportedly holding out for a massive £60m offer but it appears the United are unwilling to pay the same.
However, the Standard have reported that United will return with a £50m bid for the player and they believe it will be enough to prise the star away from Selhurst Park. Palace are not really keen on keeping the player but they want to make the most they can from his signing, methinks.
Should the deal go through, Wan-Bassika will join United as a direct replacement for Antonio Valencia. He will likely slot into the first team of the side or fight a place with Diogo Dalot, who is a natural right wing back but has been deployed as an attacker.
The Red Devils failed to qualify for the Champions League or win any trophy last season but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears very determined to bring back glory days for the club. Wan-Bissaka may be part of the team next season and so, we feature a mock up picture of the player wearing a Man United shirt.
Manchester United Tipped To Sign Midfielder Who Has Six Goals In Three Matches
Manchester United have been backed by Newcastle manager Steve Bruce to sign Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn in January.
According Bruce in his pre-match conference ahead of Newcastle’s trip to the Villa Park Stadium, McGinn is a ‘smashing lad’ who has all it takes to feature for one of the best clubs in the League.
The manager praised the midfielder for his determination to do well and he believes the Red Devils won’t regret bringing him to the Theatre of Dreams.
Despite Steve Bruce’s praise for the Scottish who has scored six goals in the last three international matches, it is very unlikely to see Solskjaer complete a £50m move for his services this winter
Aston Villa are willing to keep hold of the talented Scotland international; Hence, they have slammed a huge £50m price tag on his services in order to prevent interested suitors from snatching him off their grip.
In other Manchester United news, England international Marcus Rashford has revealed his happiness under Solskjaer’s tutelage and he wants the Norwegian to remain at Old Trafford.
Reports have it that former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino could be the next manager at Old Trafford if Solskjaer fail to maintain his team’s recent form but the centre-forward has advised the Glazers to keep Solskjaer beyond this campaign.
19-goal Striker Turn Down United’s Transfer Bid Ahead Of January Window
Manchester United are linked with a move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson ahead of the upcoming January transfer window but the player has revealed his desire to remain with the Cherries.
The Red Devils are currently enjoying a new lease of life at Old Trafford but Solskjaer isn’t carried away by the newly found fortune as he is keen on adding more players to his squad.
Having scored 14 goals throughout last season and five goals this season, Wilson has emerged as one of the strikers in Solskjaer’s transfer wish-list but the Englishman has reportedly turned down the chance to work with the Norwegian this next year.
According to The Mirror, Wilson is only focused on helping Bournemouth finish the season in a favorable position on the League table.
The media outlet revealed that the player is not thinking about reports linking him to the Theatre of Dreams as he recently renewed his contract with Eddie Howe’s side.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now turn his attention towards other strikers who are also included in his transfer wish-list.
Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic, RB Leipzig’s star Timo Werner, RB Salzburg’s youngster Erling Haaland and Lille’s in-form youngster Victor Osimhen have all attracted the Norwegian’s attention following their bright start to the season.
Arsenal to contend with Man United over signing of quality defender
Manchester United are expected to be in contention for Juventus defender Merih Demiral when the transfer window reopens in January.
Though the Red Devils upgraded their defensive unit when the captured Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bisaka’s services prior to the start of the season, they haven’t been too solid at the back of the pitch.
The Premier League giants have 12 conceded goals, and Solskjaer is set to make some changes to the list of defenders at his disposal.
According to Italian media Tuttosport (via Football-Italia), the Norwegian tactician has set his eyes on the Turkish defender with a view of luring him to the Theatre of Dreams in the winter.
However, Solskjaer will need to contend with Arsenal manager Unai Emery in the race for the 20-year-old. It is believed that the Gunners manager is impressed with the report he got from his scouts who monitored the youngster’s performance against Iceland on Thursday.
The under-fire Arsenal manager has seen his defenders conceded 17 goals in 12 Premier League matches this season, a record which has led to fans displeasure.
The Spaniard is equally linked with a move for Demiral’s services as part of his plans to improve his defence in the second half of the campaign.
The same source further revealed that Serie A side AC Milan are equally keeping a close tab on the player’s situation under Maurizio Sarri, and they hope to beat the two Premier League giants to his services.
Demiral is finding regular game-time too hard to get under Sarri who prefers Leonardo Bonucci, Danielle Rugani and Matthijs de Ligt.
