Aaron Wan-Bissaka has reportedly informed Crystal Palace that he wants to join Manchester United this summer.
Palace have turned down United’s opening offer of around £40million for Wan-Bissaka, 21, and the Red Devils are already planning their next bid which will be in the region on £50m.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pleading with United to move closer to Palace’s £60m asking price as he’s confident the young right-back has the ability to take over as Antonio Valencia’s replacement for the next decade.
Diogo Dalot, who completed a £19m move from Porto to United last summer, is yet to win Solskjaer’s trust, hence the continued and intense interest in Wan-Bissaka.
According to The Sun, Wan-Bissaka has been left ‘frustrated’ by United’s rejected bid and has told Palace that he’s desperate to secure a ‘dream’ move to Old Trafford.
However, the England Under-21 international is yet to issue a formal transfer request at Selhurst Park.
While the Eagles are unlikely to budge on their £60m valuation for Wan-Bissaka, Roy Hodgson is scouring the market for possible replacements in the event of a deal being agreed with United.
