Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is reportedly closing in on a move to Premier League giants Manchester United.
The two clubs are said to be close to agreeing a deal worth in the region of £50m for the defender, who has been heavily linked with a transfer away from Selhurst Park this summer.

Wan-Bissaka stood out for Palace in the Premier League last season as he turned in a number of impressive performances at right-back for the club – as Roy Hodgson’s side finished in a comfortable midtable position.
Palace will be looking to push on next term and potentially push for a top 10 finish, but in order to do this they will need to reinvest the money they have received for Wan-Bissaka.
We have taken a look at how they could reinvest the £50m to improve their current squad…
Nathaniel Clyne - £12m
Palace will need to, for starters, replace Wan-Bissaka. The club have already been linked with a deal for Clyne at Liverpool, who is said to be valued at £12m. The English defender is an experienced Premier League campaigner and could prove to be a very good signing.
Jack Butland - £20m
Crystal Palace have been linked with a move for Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland. Stoke are said to be wanting £30m for the England international, but it could quite easily be haggled down to £20m as the window draws to a close.
Joe Lolley - £15m
Crystal Palace have been heavily linked with a move to sign Nottingham Forest winger Joe Lolley this summer, who is said to be valued at £15m. The winger scored 11 and assisted 11 in the Championship last season and would be an excellent addition to Palace’s squad.
Bilel Hassaini - Free
Crystal Palace have reportedly made an offer to sign Hassaini on a free transfer this summer, with his contract at Nancy coming to an end. The sale of Wan-Bissaka could help to cover the cost of his wages.
Mason Mount - Loan
Palace could do with some more creativity in midfield next season and signing Mount on loan could do just that. The England under-21 international enjoyed an excellent season on loan to Derby in the Championship. Although it would be a loan, the Wan-Bissaka fee could help pay for his wages.
Michy Batshuayi - Loan
Palace could look to bring back Michy Batshuayi on another loan spell at Selhurst Park. The Belgian international’s wages would then likely take up the rest of the £50m.
