Manchester United agree £50m deal for Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United and Crystal Palace have agreed a £50million deal which will see Aaron Wan-Bissaka move to Old Trafford this summer.

A sum of £45million will be paid upfront and the balance on a later date.

When the deal finally gets concluded, Wan-Bissaka will be Manchester United’s most expensive defender in the club’s history.

The deal which only falls short of the £89million paid for midfielder Paul Pogba, surpasses that paid for former defenders Nemanja Matic and Rio Ferdinand.

Wan-Bissaka is expected to go for his medicals this week and should be earning £80,000 a week.

The 21-year old’s performance last season announced him as one of the outstanding defenders in the English Premier League. This alerted a number of top clubs who will now have to settle with United signing him.
