Manchester United agreed on a deal of around £15m plus £3m in add-ons.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka had a major breakthrough in his career at Crystal Palace last season after he was made the first choice right-back at Selhurst Park ahead of former recipient Joel Ward.

The 21-year-old featured in 35 league games for Crystal Palace during the just concluded season as the Eagles secured a 12th place finish.

He was previously linked with major Premier League sides like Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal but it was the Red Devils who firmed up their interest in him with several bids until the last bid of around £50m was accepted by Crystal Palace.

Wilfried Zaha

Three-time European champions Manchester United are reportedly keen on re-signing one of their former players according to The Sun.

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is a key player for the Eagles but he’s wanted back at Old Trafford despite his highly unsuccessful spell at the club.

According to the publication from the stables of The Sun, Manchester United want to re-sign Wilfried Zaha in a deal that could be as high as £70m.

The Ivorian international is said to be one of their priority transfers next summer.

Wilfried Zaha was the last signing of the Sir Alex Ferguson era at Manchester United but he didn’t justify his £15m price tag at the club before being farmed out on loan to Welsh team Cardiff City.

He joined Crystal Palace on loan afterwards before securing a permanent return to the London club whom he left for Manchester United in 2013.

Since his return to Selhurst Park, he has scored 32 goals in 175 Premier League games.

Wilfried Zaha was the subject of bids from the likes of Everton and Arsenal in the summer after the player indicated his willingness to leave the club but they were unable to match the £80m asking price from Crystal Palace.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has been one of the best players for the west London giants in the Premier League season in what’s a remarkable form of renaissance for the Italian national team player.

Jorginho was much maligned by the Chelsea fans while Maurizio Sarri was the Blues boss last season having followed the Italian tactician from Serie A giants Napoli to Stamford Bridge at the start of last season.

The advent of Frank Lampard as the successor to Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea manager has led to the Jorginho being rejuvenated in a Chelsea team performing well this season despite the transfer ban imposed on them by world football’s governing body FIFA.

Chelsea were unable to sign players in the summer due to the two-window transfer ban slammed on the West Londoners.

The Blues will be without the aforementioned Jorginho for the Crystal Palace game at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Jorginho has accumulated five yellow cards and he’s suspended for the home game against the Eagles.

The Italian international is expected to be replaced by French midfielder N’Golo Kante who has battled with a knee problem for the majority of the new Premier League season.

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is also a doubt for the Crystal Palace game after picking up a knock against Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam in the Champions League.
