Manchester United have finally completed a deal for Crystal Palace standout Aaron Wan-Bissaka after weeks of speculation. Wan-Bissaka was one of the top targets for United ahead of this summer transfer window given the lack of agents they have to cover the right flank of the field; plus, the defender already has Premier League experience, which makes his adaptation to the Red Devils a lot easier.
Aaron lands in Old Trafford for a fee in the region of £50 million. The 21-year-old has reached a five-year deal with an option for an extra year to become United's second signing of the summer following the arrival of Daniel James from Swansea City.
Speaking on his arrival at the club, the wing-back stated:
“It’s an unbelievable feeling and an honor to call myself a Manchester United player and something I know that only a small number of players have the privilege to say.
"I can't wait to get going and integrated into the squad. I will have a short break now after the European Championships but I'm looking forward to starting training with the manager and my new team-mates on the pre-season tour."
He needed only one season to show what he got at Selhurst Park, quickly making himself a known name as one of the best players in his position in England's top flight. Aaron made 129 tackles, completed 84 interceptions and recovered the ball over 200 times last season, which made him an instant target for several teams.
However, the last laugh belongs to Manchester United, who secured the player's signature expecting to see the same performance from the England U21 international next season.
