ITS OFFICIAL !!! Aaron Wan Bissaka is a Red! Born and raised in South London, He’s one of the best Right Backs specially at timing tackles. The Saviour of Man Utd’s right back problems – Aaron Wan Bissaka is a Red Devil for the foreseeable future!
The 21-year-old, who made his first-team debut for Palace last year, has agreed a five-year contract that will earn him up to £80,000 a week.
He had been with Palace, his local club, since he was 11, making seven appearances in 2017/18, before making the full-back berth his own during an impressive campaign last season.
He appeared 35 times in the league and claimed three assists to help Palace finish 12th. His 90 tackles won last season was the second-best total in the top flight.
“It’s an unbelievable feeling and an honour to call myself a Manchester United player and something I know that only a small number of players have the privilege to say,” Wan-Bissaka told Man Utd’s official website.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Wan-Bissaka was “one of the best upcoming defenders in the Premier League”.
He added: “He has the right work ethic, talent and mentality to play for Manchester United and he fits exactly the type of player that we are looking to bring into the squad to help us improve and push on further.”
The defender is the club’s second summer recruit, after Wales international Daniel James, 21, joined from Swansea for £15m.
