After facing relative silence for the past few weeks in addition to alleged failures, Manchester United seem adamant to pursue their targets in the weeks to come.
With Daniel James secured, the club may be eager to wrap up more signings in the weeks to come. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had made it clear that he’d prefer if the club secured all of their intended arrivals by the time his lads met for pre-season training and touring in early July.
It certainly appears that the higher-ups at Old Trafford are adhering to that timeline and may be weighing a second attempt for a crucial player.
According to the Guardian, United had a £40 million bid for Aaron Wan-Bissaka rejected by Crystal Palace earlier this month. The report states that the Mancunians giants are now debating whether to make a second attempt for the right-back.
In a separate claim, Kaveh Solhekol of Sky Sports tweets that the Red Devils have made a ‘substantial’ bid.
21 years of age, Wan-Bissaka is one of the most exciting prospects in English football and meets the criteria of young British talent that the Norwegian gaffer is reportedly eager to stock his roster with.
The source adds that it is unclear at this point whether a figure in the range of £60 million will be entertained by the London club.
The player is bound to Selhurst Park by contract until 2022 which puts the Eagles in peak bargaining position, but it is being claimed that they don’t wish to sell.
United are lacking in the right-back position at the moment after the departure of Antonio Valencia. While Ashley Young has been deployed in the spot the past season, the veteran isn’t up to the mark. Last season’s signing Diogo Dalot is still too inexperienced to man the spot on a regular basis.
