Crystal Palace have rejected a £40 million bid for their star right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to reports. 

Wan-Bissaka enjoyed a breakthrough season for the Eagles in 2018/19, making the right-back spot his own and making 39 appearances in all competitions. He has also been a regular in the England under-21 squad.

United have long been thought to have an interest in Wan-Bissaka. They are in the market for a right-back to replace the ageing Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia.

However, United’s bid falls well short of what the Eagles want for their star, who is contracted to the club until 2022. Sky Sports News says that Palace bosses are holding out for £60 million for him.

Whether United come in with a higher bid – or if Palace will lowers their demands – remains to be seen.

Other potential options for United include Tottenham Hotspur’s Kieran Trippier, who is seemingly out of favour under Mauricio Pochettino. He could be available for transfer, although other clubs would no doubt be interested.
