Manchester United will need to make a £50m offer to get a deal for Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka over the line, according to Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move to sign the England Under-21 international throughout the transfer window so far as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to rebuild.

Manchester United are looking to improve their options at right-back after Ecuador international Antonio Valencia was released on a free transfer earlier this month.

Wan-Bissaka is thought to be one of Manchester United’s top defensive targets after his impressive season at Crystal Palace under former England manager Roy Hodgson.

The 21-year-old made three assists in 34 games in the Premier League to help the Eagles remain in the English top flight.

Reports in the English media last week suggested that Manchester United had failed with an opening bid for the Crystal Palace full-back in the summer transfer window.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth says Manchester United will need to bid closer to £50m to have a chance of securing a deal for the Palace defender this summer.

“It should be made clear that Aaron Wan Bissaka is Man United’s first option,” Sheth told Sky Sports’ Transfer Talk podcast.

“They’ve had one big rejected already. We expect them to go in with another bid.

“I’ve spoken to someone close to the deal. Palace will only consider a deal upwards of £50m. Significantly, Wan Bissaka would want the move.”

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a spot in next season’s Champions League.
