Aaron Wan Bissaka Edges Closer To Manchester United.
The 21-year-old right-back has been snapped up on a long-term contract following a breakout season with Crystal Palace.
Manchester United have completed the signing of Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka in a deal worth £50.
The England Under-21 international has gone through medicals on Thursday having returned from the Young Lions’ unsuccessful tilt at the European Under-21 Championship in Italy.
And now the club has announced that they have wrapped up the signing of the highly-rated 21-year-old, making him their second addition of the summer following on from the deal of David James from Swansea city.
The deal contained a £35m fee with an additional £15m in add-ons, dependent upon personal and collective honours, one of which is said to be United winning the Champions League.
The Eagles are believed to see that as unrealistic and would prefer to receive the money up front, while they also wished to reduce or cancel United’s sell-on clause for Wilfried Zaha.
However, the deal reportedly agreed means the Red Devils still receive 25 per cent of any transfer fee a club pays for the Ivory Coast forward.
“It’s an unbelievable feeling and an honour to call myself a Manchester United player and something I know that only a small number of players have the privilege to say.
“I can’t wait to get going and integrated into the squad. I will have a short break now after the European Championships but I’m looking forward to starting training with the manager and my new team-mates on the pre-season tour.”
