Man United in pole position to sign £40m star wanted by City

Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka had emerged a target for Citizens Manchester City. And now, Chelsea and Manchester United have entered the fray.

Since debuting for Palace in February last year, the defender has gathered plenty of attention, and the noise over his performance has neither calmed nor abated.

His inventive self has seen him displace former Palace right-back Joel Ward from that berth after he got knocked out of action by injury.

The 21-year-old had originally been linked with a move to join Pep Guardiola’s men before the turn of the year according to the Mirror.

Manchester City had reportedly added him to their shortlist of targets this month. However, the Sky Blues could face a real contention for his signature with Chelsea said to have entered the race, and now Manchester United.

It is understood Palace is reluctant to sell the right-back and are determined to fend off interests in his services like they did with Chelsea who had registered their interests in Wilfred Zaha.

Wan-Bissaka penned a new deal with Palace last year, which already has him tied down to the outfit for the next four years. Though, should United step up their interest, he could be prised out of Selhurst Park for 40 million pounds.
