Reports: Manchester United agree personal terms with next right back

Lampard admits Eden Hazard is ‘impossible’ to replace

Reports suggest that Premier League giants Manchester United have finally gotten hold of Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, after weeks of pursuing the youngster for his signature. The Red Devils have also apparently agreed on personal terms with the right-back player.

Metro reports that Palace finally agreed with Manchester United on a deal for Wan-Bissaka, after rejecting two of their previous bids. The first bid was for £40million while the second bid was for £50million, according to Metro.

The English news agency further adds that United’s third bid was for a reported £55million, which if Crystal Palace has accepted as claimed by the reports, will make Wan-Bissaka the most expensive English defender of all-time, trumping Kyle Walker who arrived at Manchester City from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2017 for a fee of £50million.

Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk will remain the most expensive Premier League defender ever, as other teams are yet to overtake the Reds’ bid of £75million for the former Southampton defender in 2018 January.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old Wan-Bissaka is also set to be rewarded well by Manchester United, for agreeing to move to the Old Trafford. Metro claims that the new right-back will earn £80,000-a-week at the club, according to journalist Andy Mitten. The online publication further reveals that the youngster’s initial contract with the Red Devils will be charted for a period of three years.
