Three-time European champions Manchester United are reportedly closing in on their second signing of the summer.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Mail which claimed that the Red Devils are on the brink of agreeing on a deal for top transfer target Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

England u-21 international Aaron Wan-Bissaka plays his club football for South London club Crystal Palace at the moment.

It was revealed that the Red Devils are closing in on an initial agreement of £42.5m for Aaron Wan-Bissaka after extended talks on Friday.

Manchester United have made the signing of a new right-back their top priority during this summer’s transfer window and Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been identified as the man for the job.

Apart from Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Manchester United have also been linked with other right-back targets like Paris Saint Germain (PSG) star Thomas Meunier, Norwich City defender Max Aarons, Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier and Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has enjoyed a meteoric rise in English football since he broke into the first team at Crystal Palace ahead of former right-back recipient Joel Ward.

The 21-year-old was one of the best players for Crystal Palace throughout the just concluded season as the Eagles finished the league campaign in 12th spot.
