Aaron Wan-Bissaka: Manchester United target pictured wearing iconic Red Devils kit as a child

A picture has emerged of a young Aaron Wan-Bissaka wearing a Manchester United shirt, with his move to Old Trafford edging closer.

The Crystal Palace right-back is reportedly set for a medical with the Red Devils when he returns from England’s Euro Under-21 Championship campaign in Italy.

And it seems he will be joining the club he supported as a boy.

The Sun have published a picture of the 21-year-old in his infancy, sporting a red United kit from the late 1990s.

Wan-Bissaka grew up in south London and came through the Palace academy, making his first-team debut against Tottenham in 2018.

It is understood the Red Devils are close to agreeing a £55m deal to bring the Englishman to Old Trafford, which would make him the most expensive British full-back of all time.

However, the Guardian reports that Palace have rejected a second bid for their academy graduate due to questionable add-ons proposed by United.

The newspaper claims the offer contained a £35m fee with an additional £15m in add-ons, dependent upon personal and collective honours, one of which is said to be United winning the Champions League.

Palace are believed to see that as unrealistic and would prefer to receive the money up front.

Wan-Bissaka has three years remaining on his contract and Eagles chairman Steve Parish reportedly wants a guaranteed £50m fee for the club’s 2018/19 Player of the Season.

The England youth international featured 39 times for the Eagles in a sensational breakthrough season.
