Man Utd and Chelsea joins Man city in race for highly-rated Crystal Palace youngster

Aaron-Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United and Chelsea are preparing to sign highly-rated Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka – and wouldn’t hesitate to pay the reported sum of £40million transfer fee to sign the ace.

According to the Daily Mirror, Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is braced-up for summer transfer window profit in the England Under-21 international, who has been the club’s first choice right-back since his first appearance last February.

Wan-Bissaka has at a point been connected with a move to Manchester City having been on Pep Guardiola radar, but the Mirror claims Chelsea and United are preparing summer bids to hijack City’s move for 21-year-old right-back.

Manchester United sealed a contract deal with Diogo Dalot last summer and despite given limited opportunity to explore, Dalot has not used his chances well, and it’s believed that they will take their chance to sign the Palace man if the Eagles is interested in sealing a deal hence.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking forward to a long-term in the United hotseat and reports claimed on Wednesday that he had made two of his defenders available – spiking the interest of Wolves, Everton and Arsenal.

Chelsea are still tight in the dept of their squad with Cesar Azpillicueta one of Premier League’s most consistent player‘s, but at 29 it’s likely he has just few years on pitch at the top of his game.

Maurizio Sarri’s primary agenda seems to be a push for The Blues’ defense with a deal for Gonzalo Higuain becoming a reality.

Wan-Bissaka contract with Palace remains valid till 2022 after earning himself a reward with a new contract in April and the Eagles would take all possible measures keep him.
