Manchester United could officially reach an agreement to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka as early as today.
According to The Times, the Red Devils have made progress in their negotiations with Crystal Palace over the right-back’s services, with both parties reaching an agreement regarding the transfer fee.
The Eagles have succeeded in holding out for an initial £50 million plus £5 million in add-ons, which finally brings the agreed fee up to £55 million.
With a transfer fee now in place, all that’s left is for the player to pass his medical at Carrington, and sign the contract.
Incidentally, the England Under-21s are on their way back from the European Championship, after having played their final match last night.
Therefore, Wan-Bissaka, now free from international duty, is expected to head to Manchester straightaway, in order to complete his medical and put pen to paper.
Wan-Bissaka will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second Manchester United signing, following the footsteps of former Swansea City winger Daniel James.
With this transfer in the bag, the Mancunians are now expected to turn their attention towards recruiting a centre-back and an attacking midfielder, as they intend to get most business done before the pre-season kicks off on July 1.
