Manchester United have finally agreed a fee with Crystal Palace for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to Duncan Castles of the Daily Record.

The report states United will pay £55 million for the right-back.

It does not break down how much will be paid up front and how much will be in instalments.

United had previously failed with two bids for Wan-Bissaka.

Palace had originally wanted £65 million, The Times had reported.

Wan-Bissaka’s widely reported desire to move to Old Trafford had brought Palace to the negotiating table.

Positive step

United’s transfer negotiations have been frustrating this summer, with only Dan James signed so far.

This is a positive step in the right direction, especially if the deal can be completed by the end of the week.

Wan-Bissaka is currently in Italy with England’s under-21 side. A poor game last night did not stop United pushing ahead for his signature.

Now the next question will be, who will follow…
