Manchester United express interest in Crystal Palace star

Wan-Bissaka on Manchester United radar

Manchester United have reportedly expressed their interest in signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace after watching the player's performance during the recent league game against Brighton & Hove Albion.

The right-sided defender has made vast improvement since breaking into the Palace first-team last term and his performances have already caught the eye of Arsenal and Manchester City.

However, according to The Sun, United are said to have joined the race for the England youth international after the club's scouts were watching him from close quarters during the 2-1 defeat versus Brighton.

Wan-Bissaka has been identified as a long-term replacement on right side of the club's defence with Ashley Young likely to be phased out from the club in the next 12 months.

Diogo Dalot remains the other young option in the United ranks to succeed Young but the club seem keen on pursuing another recruit with the former being versatile enough to play further up the field.
