Manchester United are interested in a potential double swoop for Crystal Palace full-backs Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Patrick van Aanholt, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made improving the Manchester United defence a priority in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that Manchester United are determined to land Wan-Bissaka before the start of the new Premier League season.

According to the same story, Solskjaer is eager to sign a left-back capable of pushing England international Luke Shaw for a starting place in his team.

The Sun report is claiming that former Sunderland defender Van Aanholt could fit the bill of the type of player that Solskjaer would like to sign to add more defensive options to his squad.

Manchester United are confident a deal could be struck for both players with Crystal Palace but a double swoop could cost in the region of £50m, the Sun report goes on to say.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League this season following a disappointing campaign under both Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer.
