Premier League giants Manchester United are closing in on their second signing of this summer following the news that Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka could undergo his medical at the club in the coming days.

According to Football Insider, Manchester United are keen to speed up the deal before they jet out for their preseason at Australia.

It was revealed that a medical for the young right-back could take place this week after Manchester United made a breakthrough in transfer talks.

Earlier reports had claimed that Manchester United have agreed on an initial fee of £42.5m for Aaron Wan-Bissaka after weeks of negotiations between the Red Devils and Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils had earlier made two bids for the 21-year-old right-back before the third offer of £42.5m upfront was accepted by the South London club.

Manchester United have already made one signing after Daniel James joined the club from English Championship side Swansea City earlier this summer and Aaron Wan-Bissaka is on course to become the second signing of the summer.

Welsh international Daniel James signed for Manchester United in a deal reported to be around £18m.

The 21-year-old has been rewarded for a superb form for Welsh side Swansea City during the just concluded league campaign.
