Premier League giants Manchester United have identified Norwich City defender Max Aarons as the backup option in the event that their chase to sign Crystal Palace star Aaron Wan-Bissaka hits the rocks.
The Red Devils have made Aaron Wan-Bissaka their top defensive target ahead of the new season after the England junior international impressed a great deal during the just concluded campaign which turned out to be his first season in the top flight of English football.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has established himself as one of the best right-backs in the Premier League after just one season.
Crystal Palace are holding out for £60m for him amidst the Manchester United interest.
The first Manchester United offer was £35m rising to £40m depending on add-ons and the former European champions are expected to return with a new offer.
Manchester United are confident that they can sign the player for £50m.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has three years left on his contract with Crystal Palace, and Manchester United have made Max Aarons the alternative to the Eagles right-back if they can’t sign him.
Max Aarons was a key member of the Norwich City team that won promotion to the Premier League for the new season by winning the English Championship title.
He was named the PFA Young Player of the Year in the English Championship.
