Reports on the Evening Standard suggest that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and bosses at Manchester United are considering a third bid for Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
United have already seen two bids rejected but remain keen to finalise a deal for the player.
Wan-Bissaka has been tipped to leave Palace in the summer and since the end of the season, multiple teams have been linked with moves to sign him.
Manchester United are reportedly preparing a third bid which is said to be in the region of £40-45 million, plus £5 million in add-ons.
Solskjaer is trying to make sure they have their squad ready by the start of next month, for the beginning of their pre-season tours in Australia and the Far East. The only signing they have made so far is Welsh international Daniel James.
With both teams wanting to finalise Wan-Bissaka’s future, United will be hoping their latest bid for the English defender is enough to secure his services ahead of next season.
Why Wan-Bissaka would be a crucial player to any team going forward
Wan-Bissaka is a young player and has a long career ahead of him. He’s proven himself at this young age and is likely to carry on performing at a high standard going forward.
Room for improvement
In years to come, Wan-Bissaka will only get better. Whoever he plays for over the next few years, they will be lucky as they will be able to mentor and train him into an elite player.
He plays for England’s U21s as things stand, but he will certainly be battling for a place in the senior squad next season.
Wan-Bissaka is the modern day full-back that loves to attack but can also hold his own defensively, making him perfectly suited to a more attacking team.
