Manchester United Football Club have been ramping up their interest in Aaron Wan-Bissaka recently, with the Red Devils firming things up with an official bid.
That’s according to the Daily Mail, who say that United have had one bid of £35million plus £15million in add-ons rejected. Apparently, Crystal Palace were unimpressed by the bonuses that were on the table due to the likelihood of them being reached.
The report states that talks will continue on Monday (today), with Palace wanting a bigger up-front fee – making the value less-dependent on what the young right-back achieves at Old Trafford.
Although there remains distance between the two club’s asking price, there is an ‘optimism’ that a deal can be done for Wan-Bissaka, who is currently preparing to play for England in the U21 European Championships.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is apparently ‘determined’ to land the man who is his number one right-back target this summer, with United’s hopes boosted due to the fact that the player wants the move.
Honestly, Edward Woodward just needs to stop pussyfooting around and pay Palace’s asking price to get this deal done. I understand that this is a business and sometimes the process can be long and drawn-out, but just look at how efficiently Real Madrid have gone about their summer. Right now, they’re showing us exactly how a big club operates…
