Fallen Premier League giants Manchester United have made a new right-back signing a top priority during this transfer window and young Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka is their prime target for the job.

The Red Devils have been frustrated in their negotiations with fellow Premier League club Crystal Palace over the potential transfer of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The former Premier League champions have made two separate bids for the England junior international and those bids were knocked back by the Eagles.

The first bid was £40m including £5m in add-ons, while the second bid was £50m including £15m in add-ons.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has only spent one season in the English top flight but his impressive performances have propelled him to be one of the best right-backs in the league and Crystal Palace are demanding at least £50m excluding any add-ons.

Manchester United have other alternatives if they are unable to agree on a deal with Crystal Palace for the transfer of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Other right-back targets include Max Aarons of Norwich City FC, Thomas Meunier of French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj.

Manchester United XI (4-3-3): David De Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw; Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Juan Manuel Mata; Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial.
