Manchester United are ready to launch an opening bid for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Recruiting a right-back is believed to be one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s topmost priorities this summer, especially since the departure of Antonio Valencia on a free transfer.

While Jose Mourinho signed Diogo Dalot to fill the right-back spot for the long term, Solskjaer has identified his own primary target, in the form of Crystal Palace starlet Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Now, according to the Standard, Solskjaer has urged Ed Woodward to make the first move for the 21-year-old.

The report states that Manchester United are prepared to submit an opening bid of £25 million for Wan-Bissaka.

This offer will almost certainly be rejected, however, as the Eagles are expected to hold out for at least £50m for the English defender.

Manchester City are also said to be interested in Wan-Bissaka, and a bid from the newly-crowned champions of England would surely up the competition, and subsequently help Palace get their desired transfer fee for the youngster.

Meanwhile, the source adds that the Red Devils have also upped their pursuits of Swansea City’s Daniel James and Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff, with the likes of Idrissa Gueye and Bruno Fernandes also on their radar.
