Crystal Palace reject Manchester United’s £50m bid for Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United have seen a second bid worth £50 million rejected for Aaron Wan-Bissaka according to reports.

Last week, news broke that Manchester United had lodged a ‘substantial bid’ for the 21-year-old, a bid which was rebuffed despite being believed to be worth around £40 million.

In recent days, a number of trusted news outlets have been suggesting that Crystal Palace would accept a bid of £50 million for the England U21 international.

With Wan-Bissaka seemingly the Red Devils first choice target at right-back, they have returned with an improved offer, although Sky Sports report that the bid, totalling the desired £50 million, has been rejected by the South London club.

They report that Manchester United’s offer was comprised of an initial payment of £35 million, with the further £15 million being payable in ‘additional payments’, although it is unknown if they were performance related add-0ns or guaranteed payments.

Sky still report that the Eagles are likely to accept an offer of £50 million if the payment was made ‘up front’.

Wan Bissaka is thought to be keen on a move to Old Trafford, although is not trying to force a move, and has not handed in a transfer request.
