According to the BBC, Crystal Palace have agreed to sell the defender for £50 million to fellow Premier League side, Manchester United.
As Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to continue his squad strengthening ahead of next season, the much-rumoured signing of Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka is reportedly in the bag.
United add Wan-Bissaka
According to the BBC's David Ornstein, an agreement has been reached between the two Premier League clubs. The transfer will cost The Red Devils £50 million, making the 21-year old the sixth most expensive defender of all-time, and comes after an impressive season at right-back. Many observers had him rated as the second best in the league bettered only by Champions League winner Trent Alexander-Arnold.

For United it adds solidity and pace to the position that has been filled by a combination of the aging Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia, as well as the young Diogo Dalot.
Wan-Bissaka is expected to complete his medical before heading off on holiday, and will see his £10,000 per week salary rocket to £80,000.
