Wan-Bissaka completes £50m move to Manchester United

 

England junior international of Congolese descent Aaron Wan-Bissaka has sealed £50million move to Manchester United from Crystal Palace.

The five-year deal worth £80,000-a-week will see the 21 year old remain at the Old Trafford till 2024 in the first instance with provision for possible extension.

United will pay an initial fee of £45m, with another £5m due in add-ons should the player hit certain performance targets.

Wan-Bissaka told United’s website: ‘It’s an unbelievable feeling and an honour to call myself a Manchester United player and something I know that only a small number of players have the privilege to say.

‘I can’t wait to get going and integrated into the squad. I will have a short break now after the European Championships but I’m looking forward to starting training with the manager and my new team-mates on the pre-season tour.’

Following Saturday’s announcement, Wan-Bissaka is now officially the second signing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made this summer as he looks to rebuild his squad for the coming Premier League campaign.

Daniel James became the first summer arrival at Old Trafford when the 21-year-old joined from Swansea for £18m.

Wan-Bissaka will wear the No 29 on his back at Old Trafford. Wilfried Zaha was the last player to have that squad number at United, with Tomasz Kuszczak, Jonathan Spector, Alex Notman, Michael Appleton and Ben Thornley assigned it before him.
