Wan-Bissaka’s transfer to Man United takes a massive twist

Man United’s pursuit of Aaron Wan-Bissaka has suffered a major set back after Crystal Palace rejected a £40m bid for the wing back, according to reports.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on a spending spree at United. After securing a deal for Daniel James, the Red Devils are looking to add other players to their squad.

There is currently a dearth of option for Solkjaer in the defence of United. Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian are on the exit list of the club, and they have identified the England youngster as a perfect fit to replace the aforementioned players.

Skysports reported that Palace have refused to budge to Man United’s £40m offer for the wing back. The London club is holding out for £60m.

For the chairman of the Eagles Steve Parish, Wan-Bissaka is an asset to the club and they have plans to keep him. He has three years left on his contract with Palace, so you understand why he wont come cheap.

The player was quizzed about a possible transfer and he said: “I am with Crystal Palace at the moment. That is where my contract is and that is where I will be next season. I have got three left on my contract. It says I am going to be there, so that is all I can focus on now.”

There is no telling if United will go back with an improved bid for the player but £60m is a tad too much for the player, who is yet to prove his mettle in the Premier League.
