Premier League club in pole position to sign Manchester United star

Manchester United

Premier League side Crystal Palace are favourites to sign Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer, according to 90min.

Italian club Roma were interested in signing Wan-Bissaka, but the Serie A club have now turned their attention toward Lille right-back Zeki Celik.

With Roma out of the running, Crystal Palace have moved into the driving seat to sign a player they sold to United for close to £50m back in 2019.

Wan-Bissaka made 26 appearances for Manchester United last season failing to score or assist even a single goal across all competitions. 

The right-back was a key player under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but fell out of favour under Ralf Rangnick, who preferred Diogo Dalot.

Last season was incredibly challenging for the Wan-Bissaka with injuries originally forcing him out of the squad.

Diogo Dalot came into the starting XI while Wan-Bissaka was injured but the form of the Portuguese international impressed Ralf Rangnick.

Crystal Palace are favourites to land Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka on loan.

Wan-Bissaka joined Manchester United from Crystal Palace for £50million in 2019.

Since joining Manchester United, the 24 year old has made 89 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring two goals.

Wan-Bissaka arrived at Old Trafford as a promising right-back who was strong defensively but needed work on his attacking output.

He started in fine fashion, impressing in the 2019/20 season as he started 34 Premier League matches, cementing his spot as their first-choice right-back at Manchester United.

Crystal Palace currently have Joel Ward and Nathaniel Clyne as their two right-back options, and Wan-Bissaka’s potential return could add some needed quality to their squad.

Former Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick advised the club to sell Wan-Bissaka and sign a more attack-minded right-back.

Wan-Bissaka will be the latest to leave after Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Edinson Cavani and Juan Mata departed this month.
