Manchester United have agreed terms with Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The Mancunian giants have been looking for a new first-choice right-back ever since the management decided not to offer former club captain Antonio Valencia a new contract.
A number of defenders have since been linked with a switch to the Old Trafford club, but now, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to have acquired his prime target.
As per Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolò Schira, the Red Devils have reached an agreement with Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Wan-Bissaka, who has been Solskjaer’s primary target for the right-back position, has seemingly agreed a contract until 2024 with Manchester United.
With the agreement in place, the 20-time English champions are now said to be in discussions with Crystal Palace over sealing this transfer.

Meanwhile, sources in England suggest that United have already tabled a bid worth £40 million for the 21-year-old Englishman.
However, that offer is set to be rejected straightaway, as the Eagles are reportedly looking for a fee in the region of £60m for their prized asset.
