Manchester United are confident about striking a deal with Crystal Palace for Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer, according to a report in England.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the 20-time English champions haven’t been deterred in the race to sign the promising England international.

The same article states that Manchester United’s opening bid of £35m was turned down by Crystal Palace earlier this month.

According to the same story, the Red Devils believe the Eagles would be willing to sell the 21-year-old for the right price in the upcoming transfer window.

The report adds that the Manchester United board are eager to secure one of Solskjaer’s top targets this summer after conceding defeat in their attempts to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

The Evening Standard article goes on to say that the Red Devils are prepared to look at other right-back targets such as Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Muenier.

Solskjaer has a void to fill at right-back in the Manchester United team after Ecuador international Antonio Valencia called time on his Old Trafford career at the end of the 2018-19 season.

Manchester United need to make improvements to their squad this summer if Solskjaer is going to help the Red Devils challenge Manchester City and Liverpool FC next term.
