Manchester United are on the brink of signing Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Andy Mitten reports in the GQ Magazine that the Reds feel a deal for the England u21 international is all but done.
According to Mitten, Wan-Bissaka is set to earn £80,000 per week in wages at Old Trafford. The fee agreed is an initial £47m plus add-ons that will take the overall sum to £55m, making Wan-Bissaka one of the most expensive full-backs ever.
Wan-Bissaka is currently playing in the u21 European Championships this summer, recently scoring an own goal in a last-gasp defeat to France in the group stages.
However, United fans will not be concerned over the defender’s poor show in the first game of the tournament, as his form was excellent last season under Roy Hodgson at Selhurst Park.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is gaining in a position which has been a key area of weakness, with United having to rely on veteran wingers Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia, and more recently youngster Diogo Dalot.
Wan-Bisakka offers pace in attack, but is crucially solid defensively and will hopefully help stabilise United’s right-side of defence next season.
The youngster is set to become United’s second signing of the summer after Swansea winger Daniel James.
