Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s big-money switch to Manchester United is edging closer, it is understood.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are looking to kick-start their summer rebuild by signing the talented 21-year-old right-back, having so far only brought in Daniel James from Swansea.

It is understood progress was made during talks between United and Palace on Tuesday as Wan-Bissaka closes in on a move to the north west.

The fee is mooted to be an initial £45 million plus £5m add-ons, while United retain the 25 per cent sell-on clause for Wilfried Zaha.

The player is believed to be travelling to the north west to undergo a medical on Wednesday, and is expected to sign a contract worth between £80,000 to 90,000 a week, according to BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein.

Wan-Bissaka, who has been praised for his defensive qualities, impressed for Palace last season but is yet to have won a senior England cap and has only played 42 senior games.
