Manchester United have agreed a fee for Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The Red Devils have been in pursuit of the Englishman for quite some time now, having had at least two of their offers rejected by the Eagles.
While the first bid was deemed as way too low, the second was reportedly rejected due to a part of the fee being paid through add-ons.
But now, according to the Daily Record, the two clubs have finally reached an agreement regarding the right-back’s transfer fee.
As per the report, a source familiar with the negotiations has revealed that Manchester United will pay £55 million for the services of Wan-Bissaka.
If true, this will be a world record fee for a specialist full-back, making the 22-year-old the most expensive wide defender in the history of the game.
If this transfer does materialise, the Mancunians will have bought both their first-choice full-backs from their domestic rivals for record transfer fees, as United paid Southampton a record-breaking £30m for Luke Shaw back in 2014.
With a fee agreed, it only appears to be a matter of time before Wan-Bissaka officially finalises his switch to the Theatre of Dreams.
