Leaked images on Twitter suggest that the Crystal Palace fullback has put pen to paper for Manchester united. Despite just playing his debut season in Selhurst Park after graduating from their academy, the 21-year-old right back emerged as Crystal Palace’s best player of the 2018/2019 season, defeating teammates, Wilfred Zaha and Luka Milivojevic.
The £50M [pounds] valuation placed on Wan Bissaka makes him the most expensive English defender above Kyle Walker and Luka Shaw, though he is still a couple of figures shy from Liverpool's defender Virgil Van Dijk’s £75M world record fee.
Manchester United were reportedly waiting for the official opening of transfer window by July 1st to announce the deal but the cat seems to be out of the bag already.
This means that Ashley Young will be relieved off his defending duties next season. Only nine attackers successfully dribbled Wan Bissaka in the English Premier league last season. The list has big names, including Saido Mane, Leroy Sane, Heung Min Son, etc. With such statistics, it is not much of a surprise that Manchester United are after his signature considering their woeful defense cost them points last season.
