Manchester United has completed the signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for a reported £50million.

The 21-year-old has become United's second signing of the close-season, following former Swansea City winger Daniel James to Old Trafford, with the Red Devils confirming he has signed a five-year deal with the option of an additional 12 months.

England Under-21 international Wan-Bissaka, who is yet to appear for the Three Lions' senior team, came through Palace's youth academy and enjoyed a breakthrough campaign at Selhurst Park last term.

He made 129 tackles in the Premier League in 2018-19, the most of any defender across Europe's top five divisions.


A new right-back was a priority for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with Ashley Young advancing in years and captain Antonio Valencia departing after the club opted against triggering a contract extension.
