Manchester United Lining Up Big-Money Summer Raid For Palace Star

3 Posted by - March 1, 2019 - News

Manchester United’s huge financial resources see them linked with all sorts of high-profile names each and every summer, with the upcoming window sure to be no different. Indeed, they’re now being linked with a move for Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka. 

The 21-year-old made his Premier League debut just over a year ago but has gone from strength to strength in red and blue ever since, winning admirers from across Europe. At my last count, I can remember seeing stories linking him with Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Everton, Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and now Manchester United. 

Whilst the south London native is under a long contract in SE25 and has expressed absolutely no desire to leave at such an early stage of his development, the media will be awash with speculation until he does eventually fly the nest; it’s just the way things are when a player of his potential is on the books of a club outside the top six. 

There is no doubt in my mind that Manchester United will hold an interest in taking Wan-Bissaka to Old Trafford this summer, neither Ashley Young nor Antonio Valencia are in the prime of their careers and Aaron is a truly awe-inspiring talent but whether or not they’ll be willing to part with the sum Palace will demand to let him go is another matter altogether. There is simply no way that the Eagles will entertain bids of less than £40 million, to do so would be foolish given the progress the right-back has made during his first 12 months as a professional but given the lack of experience he still has, we may find that the big boys, including Manchester United, decide to wait another year before pulling the trigger on a deal. 

You can be sure that Wan-Bissaka will be linked to a host of other “super-clubs” over the next few months, it’s never going to stop. What both he and Palace do now, is ensure that any transfer which does take place makes genuine sense for both of them.

    wassa is an exceptional talent,hope he stay,s with us.for me roy,will just about keep us up,but that,s it.what man u.match showed me,roy has taken this team as far as he,s able.yet again the 3 same boring midfielders.no pace no imagination.why oh why meyer was not in at the start.he,s the only one capable of energy,decent linkup play.how,s he going to learn unless he play,s.we were very second best.on the night no-body till meyer came on,gave utd a game.yes we were without in defence.but our midfield,what midfield.this has got to stop.we have a squad that is second to none in the lower half in the table,but look where we are?

    Keep him another season and if he continues his progress then a fee of £60m would be easily achievable…so it then becomes a sound business investment £20m increase in 9 months and we get to keep him for another season. Simples…

    It’s not true that Max is the ONLY midfielder who is capable of decent link-up play. Look at Luka’s pass to Macca for our first (Batshuayi’s) goal against Leicester. Midfield link-up play doesn’t get any better than that.
    Having said that, I’d like to see Max starting too but when Macca and Schlupp are getting as many assists as they have been lately…

    yes but luka does,nt run around,or go beyond last defender like meyer for doncaster goal.im not moaning about luka,but with 2 guys similar their,s not enough flexibility,not enough empossing our midfield on the oppotion ..man u.showed we are miles from being a good side,we have little midfield influence,and without it u can,t play as a complete team.
