United agree deal to sign defender Wan-Bissaka

Sports | AGENCIES 27 Jun 2019

Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace on a long-term contract.

The deal would be worth 50 million, according to the BBC, with the England under-21 international set to travel to Old Trafford for a medical shortly.

The 21-year-old, who had three years left on his Palace contract, started 35 Premier League games for the club last season as they finished 12th.

Wan-Bissaka is set to be the second new arrival at Old Trafford in the close season as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to overhaul the squad. They have already signed Wales winger Daniel James from Swansea City.

Spanish midfielder David Silva, meanwhile, has confirmed he will leave Manchester City at the end of next season when his contract expires.

The 33-year-old believes completing a decade in Manchester is the perfect time to step away. "It's a nice round figure," he said. "I can never see myself playing against City for another team. So 10 years - that's it."
