Manchester United set to submit second Wan-Bissaka bid with Palace holding out for £60m

United keen to get their man

We've already seen some early business completed at Manchester United after the Red Devils agreed a deal to sign Swansea City's young winger Daniel James, for a fee that could rise to £18m.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to be very active in the transfer market over the next few months and he's already identified another major target, in Crystal Palace's Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 21 year-old is one of the Premier League's most exciting young players and he's making a big name for himself in the game after a magnificent breakthrough season.

He's become a key man for the Eagles over the last eighteen months and it's going to take a large amount of money to tempt Palace to part with one of their prized assets, especially with Wilfried Zaha also linked with a move away from the club.

He's under contract for another three seasons meaning that Palace hold all the power in this situation, so United will be looking for the youngster to push for a move if they're to get him to Old Trafford.

Wan-Bissaka Crystal Palace
He may have just 42 Premier League appearances under his belt, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka is one of the most highly rated defenders in the Premier League

It's believed that United have already had an opening bid of £40m rejected by the Eagles, a large amount when you consider his lack of experience, but it also just re-enforces how highly rated he is.

A right back is believed to be near the top of Solskjaer's shopping list this summer so we're expecting him to go again in his pursuit for the 21 year-old.

A move for Wan-Bissaka would likely see United break the transfer record for an English defender, after Manchester City paid £45m for Kyle Walker back in 2017. But is he worth it? We've had a look at what he can bring to Old Trafford..

Premier League proven with plenty of years on the clock

It's no secret that Manchester United are in the market for a new right back this summer and in Aaron Wan-Bissaka, they could finally have their long-term Gary Neville replacement.

At the age of 21 he still has plenty time to grow and build on the impressive foundations he's made for himself over the last eighteen months and despite the Red Devils being in a sorry state at the moment, it would be a difficult move for him to turn down.

They have the financial muscle available to blow any Palace contract out of the water and they'll be looking to return to the Champions League as soon as possible. So it's going to be interesting to see if he pushes for a transfer or decides to remain loyal to the club that gave him his breakthrough.

If they can persuade both Palace and the player to get this deal over the line, United would be getting one of the best young full-backs in the game and he'd represent something of an upgrade on Ashley Young and Diogo Dalot, who've both found life difficult this season.

Ashley Young
Winger turned defender Ashley Young has been the subject of a lot of criticism this season from United fans

Wan-Bissaka is a proven Premier League player and he's the definition of the modern day full-back. A threat going forward and an excellent defender, he looks composed way beyond his tender years which is why he has such a big price tag.

He's struck up a great understanding with Andros Townsend on the Eagles' right which saw him produce three assists over the course of the campaign, a very decent return for a young player.

But it's defensively where he really excels. Only Idrissa Gueye (4.3) and Wilfred Ndidi (3.8) averaged more tackles per game than Wan-Bissaka (3.7), which proves that he's not unnerved when facing some of the worlds best attacking players.

This played a massive part in Palace keeping a total of 12 clean sheets last season in the PL (5 more than United), the highest total outside the top eight which is pretty impressive and it certainly would've been noted by chiefs at Old Trafford.

Is he worth the £60m that Palace are demanding?

Transfer fees have been out of control over the last few seasons so it's no surprise to see Crystal Palace demanding a massive £60m for Wan-Bissaka.

It's a crazy figure when you think he's got just 18 months of senior football under his belt, but it's also an indication of just how good The Eagles believe he is.

United certainly have the funds to get this deal over the line and with them so desperate to get some new faces into Old Trafford, Palace will be looking to exploit that.

The asking price is huge but if he was to join and become a real success in the north west, United could potentially have him on the books for 10+ years, meaning he'd work out at around £6m a season. Not bad at all.

But the pressure on his shoulders would be huge. Not just is he joining one of (if not the) biggest clubs in the world but he'd also be joining a club that's going through a massive transitional period at the moment.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Any move for Wan-Bissaka is likely to eclipse the £45m paid by Manchester City for Kyle Walker two years ago, which would make him the most expensive English defender

Missing out on Champions League football for next season was a major blow and they can't afford to miss out for a second successive year. Signing Wan-Bissaka would be a big statement of intent that they're keen to return to Europe's elite and we're confident that he'd make the step up.

His composure, defensive and technical ability make him the complete defender, putting in performances that you'd expect from someone much more experienced. He's proven that he can cut it in the Premier League for the last 18 months and he's coped with everything thrown at him so far.

Joining this underperforming Manchester United would be a gamble but moves like this don't come around too often. If United do bid the £60m we'd be very surprised to see him remain in South London.

So United fans, you could soon be getting the news you've all been demanding, it looks like Ashley Young will be dropped! If they can pull this deal off we can see it being a real success, something that hasn't happened all too often for the club over the last few years.
