• United prepare improved bid for Palace defender

    New Manchester United signing Aaron Wan-Bissak

    Manchester United are preparing a new offer for Crystal Palace fullback Aaron Wan-Bissaka after having their initial bid for the full-back rejected.

    Ole Gunnar-Solskjaer is in the market for improvements across the board, with defence a particular focus area.

    And Wan-Bissaka has been identified by the Norwegian manager as the ideal replacement for Antonio Valencia and long-term successor to makeshift right-back, Ashley Young.

    An opening offer of £40m wasn’t enough to tempt Palace to sell, with their valuation of the England U21 international closer to £60-million.

    But, according to the Daily Mirror, a compromise of £50m could see the clubs come to an arrangement.
