After a dream season in the Premier League for Crystal Palace, 21-year-old Wan-Bissaka is a man in demand this summer.
Manchester United have already had a £40 million bid turned down but reports from Football.London suggest the Red Devil are preparing a second £60 million bid and former player and legend John Salako has had his say.
Speaking to Football London, Salako said this:
He’s got the world at his feet. But my only concern is that we had Wilfried Zaha leave at a young age and he didn’t cope.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is expected play a key role for England’s U21’s at the European Championships this summer after being a surprise omission from the senior team. He will, however, have time to reflect on which club he can progress the most at as moving too early in someone’s career can either make or break a player.
It’s too early for Aaron. He needs another season. I’m not surprised United have come in because they could probably get him cheaper and they think they need to do something now.
John Salako says the defender should stay at Palace another year in order to mature and earn more valuable game time in an honest team, but wouldn’t be surprised should Wan-Bissaka move on and certainly couldn’t blame the player for following his dreams.
HERE WE LOOK AT SOME OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE ENGLISH PLAYERS TO HAVE BEEN SOLD
Moved for around £47 million when Manchester City decided to make the player their own after showing his capabilities at fellow Premier League club Everton.
Moved from Liverpool to Manchester City for around £49 million after having two bids already rejected. Was questioned and tasked at the time on his motive for the move, whether that be money or the need for success.
Moved from Tottenham to Manchester City for a reported £53 million in somewhat of a controversial move but has shown why City signed him on a number of occasions.
Aaron Wan Bissaka***
Should Wan Bissaka be sold to Manchester United this summer for the reported £60 million fee, it would make him the most expensive English player of all time, aged just 21 it would be a lot of weight on the young defenders shoulders who has yet to make an appearance for the English senior team.
