Manchester United are eyeing a swoop for £45m-rated Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka as they fear Tottenham will play hardball over Kieran Trippier, according to the Mirror.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is gearing-up for a busy summer in the transfer market as he looks to overhaul the squad that finished sixth in the Premier League this season and a new right-back is firmly on the agenda.
Antonio Valencia has ended his long association with United while Ashley Young turns 34 next month so a long-term replacement is needed to compete with Diogo Dalot – who’s still young and not deemed ready for regular first team football.
Trippier has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks but the Mirror claims Man Utd fear Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will play hardball and demand at least £30m for the former Burnley full-back.
The 28-year-old has plenty of experience at both domestic and international level but the Mirror suggests that United don’t feel £30m would represent good value for money so they’re now eyeing a move for Wan-Bissaka instead.
The youngster has just enjoyed a breakthrough campaign with Crystal Palace that saw him establish himself as a key player for Roy Hodgson and he’s now considered to be one of the most exciting talents in British football.
The 21-year-old is seven years younger than Trippier and has the potential to develop further at Old Trafford so the Mirror claim United feel he may be a better long-term signing despite the fact Palace want around £45m for his signature.
Wan-Bissaka would be a superb addition to the Man Utd squad if they could get a deal agreed with Palace as he could be their right-back for the next decade and solve what’s become a problem position for the club in recent years.
