Manchester United will have to submit a £45m offer up front if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace this summer, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that Crystal Palace have quoted Manchester United a £45m asking price as well as a number of add-ons that would take the overall fee to around £60m for the England Under-21 international.

The same article states that Manchester United will have to pay the same up-front fee that Manchester City spent on signing Kyle Walker from Tottenham Hotspur in the 2017 summer transfer window.

According to the same story, Crystal Palace and Manchester United are set to engage in fresh talks about Wan-Bissaka once the Red Devils’ executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward returns from holiday.

Wan-Bissaka and his England Under-21 team-mates crashed out of the European Under-21 Championship on Friday night following a 4-2 loss to Romania.

The Palace defender made three assists in 35 games in the Premier League last term but Wan-Bissaka failed to get on the score-sheet.

The Red Devils are looking to improve their options at full-back after Antonio Valencia left the 20-time English champions at the end of the season.

Manchester United failed to win any silverware for the second successive season last term.
