The Red Devils have had a second bid rejected by Crystal Palace for full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
It sounds like the two clubs have agreed on a valuation of £50m for Wan-Bissaka’s signature, but it’s the method of payment that they seemingly cannot settle on as of yet.
The Eagles want the money up front — no running add-ons as United seemingly proposed this time around.
Wan-Bissaka has a bright future in the game and Palace could make a nice bit of money from add-ons in his contract, but that could take time and they probably want to ensure they can replace the young Englishman, as well as bolster other areas of the team for next season.
Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol explains why United’s second bid — amounting to a total of £50m — was rejected, via the tweet listed below.
Manchester United have made bid of £50m for Crystal Palace right back Aaron Wan Bissaka. Bid has been rejected. Bid is £35m plus £15m add ons.
Palace not happy with add ons. It is thought they would accept straight £50m bid
