£40 million Crystal Palace star sparks transfer battle between Manchester City and Manchester United
Right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka could be at the centre of a major transfer battle between top Premier League clubs
The race is on to land the signature of Crystal Palace’s highly-rated young full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Rivals Manchester City and Manchester United are among the suitors for 21-year-old after an impressive season at Selhurst Park, according to the Mail.
Bosses at City were particularly impressed by Wan-Bissaka’s performance when Palace delivered a shock defeat to the title challengers at the Etihad Stadium in December.
But they will face competition from Manchester United, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer set to lose veteran right-back Antonio Valencia at the end of the season.
It is expected that Wan-Bissaka would cost around £40 million, and Palace manager Roy Hodgson has publicly admitted that both he and Wilfried Zaha could leave at the end of the season.
