Sky Sports News reporter: Man United ‘restart’ talks for 21-year-old defender
Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol gives an update on Man United's pursuit of Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Manchester United have restarted talks with Crystal Palace about the possible signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol.
The Red Devils have been linked with a swoop to sign the England Under-21 international in the summer transfer window but a deal has failed to materialise so far.
Manchester United were thought to have had two bids for the English full-back turned down as Crystal Palace look to maximum value for Wan-Bissaka this summer.
Sky Sports reporter Solhekol has now shed some light on Manchester United’s apparent interest in Wan-Bissaka and whether a fresh bid for the Crystal Palace defender was imminent.
Solhekol wrote on Twitter: “Manchester United have restarted talks with Crystal Palace about Aaron Wan Bissaka but they have not made an improved bid yet (as of 3pm). Last bid was £35m rising to £50m. Palace want £50m up front”
Solskjaer is in the market to sign a new right-back following Antonio Valencia’s departure earlier this summer after a decade at the 20-time English champions.
Manchester United defender Ashley Young is set to turn 34 next month, leaving Diogo Dalot as the club’s long-term option in the right-back role.
The Red Devils signed Wales international Daniel James in a £15m deal from Championship side Swansea City earlier this summer.
Manchester United have also secured Juan Mata on a new two-year deal after his Spanish compatriot Ander Herrera left the club on a free transfer.
Solskjaer’s side finished in sixth spot in the top-flight table last term.
