Manchester United yet to make improved Aaron Wan-Bissaka bid

Manchester United yet to make improved Aaron Wan-Bissaka bid

The 21-year-old Londoner is now on England worldwide duty at the U21 European Championships, but it is believed United and Palace have agreed a fee for the highly-rated full-back.

Meanwhile, the third and final bid that has been accepted amounts to £55 million for the 21-year-old, who is understood to be keen on a move to Old Trafford. Young, modern, English stars seem to be on the menu for the Red Devils, and Wan-Bissaka ticks all the boxes, as does Daniel James, who Manchester United signed just last week. Ed Woodward has been after Wan-Bissaka since the start of the window, but according to reports, he has had 2 bids turned down prior to this successful one.

Wan-Bissaka is now away with England at the Under-21 Championships in Italy so the right-back may have to wait until after the tournament before he can finally become a Manchester United player.

Marvel approaches Keanu Reeves for ‘almost every film’, says Kevin Feige
It was reported a couple of weeks ago that Keanu Reeves was supposedly in early talks for a role in Marvel's The Eternals . I also can't say I'm overjoyed at the concept of such a film - unless they get Keanu Reeves in there somewhere, that is.

Too often Manchester United have overpaid and undersold in the transfer market so denying Palace may be the smarter move in the long run.

United and Palace officials have been in talks since the weekend over a fee for the England Under-21 right-back, with his boyhood club wanting at least £50m guaranteed for the 21-year-old.

Even Manchester United could have second thoughts, with multiple claims of them looking at other targets in case Crystal Palace refuse to budge. This would make Wan-Bissaka the most expensive specialist full-back in the world, with the transfer fee set to eclipse the €57.5 million Manchester City paid AS Monaco for Benjamin Mendy.
