United in talks for Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United are reportedly locked in transfer negotiations with Crystal Palace as they seek to secure the signature of Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer.

The right-sided defender has made tremendous progress during the past 18 months with the Eagles and this has seen him linked with a number of high-profile English clubs including Arsenal and United.

According to The Mail, United are the leading contenders to pursue he right-back and they have made an initial offer of £35m with the remaining £15m to be settled in the form of performance-based add-ons.

However, the south London outfit have not been impressed with the proposal and it is claimed that they are looking for a straight fee of £50m to be paid for the England Under-21 international.

Wan-Bissaka is known to be keen on pursuing the move to Old Trafford this summer but Sky Sports News has indicated that the defender may not necessarily hand in a transfer request to push through a transfer.
