United Agree Wan Bissaka Transfer Fee | Hold On To Zaha Sell-On Clause

Manchester United according to emerging reports have succeeded in striking a deal with Crystal Palace over the signing of 21-year-old Aaron Wan Bissaka.

United have had two bids rejected by the Eagles for the right back with Palace looking for most of the fee up front.

A fee in the neighbourhood of £50 million has now been agreed for Wan Bissaka with Ivorian forward, Wilfred Zaha taking a pivotal role in the deal.

It is believed in many quarters that both clubs discussed the sell-on clause attached to former United man Zaha as part of the deal.

Consequently, the Red devils maintained a 25% sell-on clause they had on the Ivorian if the winger is sold this summer.

Zaha returned to the Eagles fold in January 2015 after a hugely unsuccessful spell at Manchester United.

The Red devils inserted a sell-on clause in Zaha’s return move to the Selhurst park and could be in for a mega profit of £15million if Zaha moves on to another club this summer with the winger interested in a move to Arsenal.

The winger has been repeatedly linked with a move to Arsenal and Tottenham but wouldn’t go for a fee less than his asking price of £80 million.

Arsenal gaffer, Unai Emery has been thought to have urged Arsenal’s board to loosen their self-imposed transfer restrictions to land the impressive winger who is his top target.

However, the board are still adamant and have made only £45 million available in transfers for Emery this summer.

Palace pushed for the clause to be removed but United have opted to maintain the clause and instead part with more cash for Wan Bissaka.

Wan-Bissaka is keen to make a switch to Old Trafford as he grew up as a United fan.

The 21 year old is now set to travel to Carrington road for his medicals and put pen to paper after making a return from the European Under 21 Championship.

Wan Bissaka has been reportedly offered a contract worth about £80k-£90k, a massive leap from the £10k he currently earns at Selhurst park.
