Manchester United Ready To Open Bidding For Aaron Wan-Bissaka With £25 Million Offer
Manchester United look set to kick off a Premier League bidding war as they ready the first move for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, with a reported £25 million bid for the Crystal Palace full back.
Is there an area of the pitch that Manchester United don't need improving? Based on this season's pitiful effort for the Premier League side the answer is a resounding 'no.'
First the team struggled into sixth place under Jose Mourinho and though there was an upturn in fortunes early on in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's time as manager they finished the season still in sixth and closer to relegation than top spot.
Solskjaer has reportedly already started going about his transfer business and is close to signing Swansea City winger Daniel James, as United turn their attention away from 'big names' and towards young exciting prospects.
Probably the biggest area for improvement for the Red Devils is in defence with the club conceding more goals than ever before in a Premier League season.
United want another centre back but they're also reportedly in the market for a new right back and are set to spark a bidding war.
According to the Evening Standard, United will be the first to make an offer for Aaron Wan-Bissaka as they ready a £25 million bid for the Crystal Palace full back.
That bid is highly unlikely to be enough for the young Englishman, with Palace holding out for around £50 million for him.
Not only is United initial bid likely to be turned down but it will no doubt set others into action with both Manchester City and Spurs also linked with the 21 year old.
United want their transfer business to be done by early July but if Pep Guardiola makes moves for Wan-Bissaka then it may delay any transfer.
The 13 time Premier League champions want to invest more in emerging young talent and Swansea's James and Wan-Bissaka would certainly tick that box.
Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff is another on the list of potential signings, though United will likely target someone with more experience for the centre back role.
Will Wan-Bissaka move to the Red side of Manchester or the blue?
