Manchester United’s capture of Aaron Wan-Bissaka is almost complete.
Andy Mitten writes for GQ that the deal is ‘all but done’, with one final meeting to take place between clubs to finalise terms.
He backs up Duncan Castles’ claim that the total fee will be £55 million.
Mitten says United’s initial investment will be £47 million with the rest in instalments.
Wan-Bissaka’s wages are set to rise to £80,000 per week at United, it is reported.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka will become United’s expected first choice right-back.
Diogo Dalot is unlikely to give up without a fight, telling United’s official website this week he sees right-back as his best position.
Ashley Young will be an emergency back-up as he enters the final year of his contract.
Matteo Darmian is expected to be sold, which will help United recoup some of the Wan-Bissaka fee.
Timothy Fosu-Mensah is recovering from a knee injury and could try to challenge in the second half of the season.
