Crystal Palace are only willing to pay £10m to re-sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka on a permanent deal from Manchester United, reports The Telegraph.

The 24-year-old has been an unused substitute in both of Erik ten Hag‘s Premier League games so far, with the former Ajax manager opting to go with Diogo Dalot at right-back.

The former England Under-21 international doesn’t possess the technical skillset to become an asset in the Dutchman’s Red Devils side.

Manchester United’s number 29 looks at his happiest and most comfortable when sliding into tackles or defending one-v-one against a tricky winger.

But with Ten Hag at the helm that isn’t going to cut it.

Manchester United paid the Eagles £50m to sign Wan-Bissaka three years go when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was at the helm.

Instead of developing and becoming one of the best all-round full-backs in the league, Wan-Bissaka has regressed during his time at Old Trafford, and it seems that Ten Hag has already decided that he forms no part of his plans whatsoever.

The Telegraph report: “United are hoping to sell or loan Aaron Wan-Bissaka with Crystal Palace, the defender’s former club, emerging as a possibility to sign them.

“It is believed Palace may be willing to pay £10 million for the 24-year-old although that would represent a huge and embarrassing loss to United who signed Wan-Bissaka for £50 million in 2019 on a five-year deal.

“However Wan-Bissaka does not feature in the plans of Erik ten Hag and a loan deal might be another option as he attempts to relaunch his career.”

With Ethan Laird joining Queens Park Rangers on a season-long loan, Ten Hag wants to sign a new right-back to challenge Dalot.

And with Brandon Williams waiting in the wings to return, it looks like Wan-Bissaka will be leaving before the transfer window closes.

The big question will be whether he departs on a permanent deal or not. If Patrick Vieira’s Palace do re-sign the right-back for just £10m, the Reds would have taken a £40m loss on yet another ill-fated transfer.
