Aaron Wan-Bissaka has arrived at Carrington to complete his move to Manchester United.
The Crystal Palace full-back will undergo the final part of his medical before joining the Red Devils in a £50million deal, making him the seventh most expensive defender in history.
It is understood the 21-year-old will sign a six-year deal with the Red Devils worth £80,000-a-week.
Wan-Bissaka and his entourage arrived at Man United’s training base in two cars on Thursday morning as the deal edges towards completion.
He will become the club’s second signing of the summer after they bought Daniel James from Swansea for £18million.
The fee for Wan-Bissaka is a big one considering he yet to make his senior international debut and only made his first appearance for Palace 16 months ago.
The right-back has made 46 club appearances in all competitions for the south London club, where he won the Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season awards.
The 21-year-old also collected the PFA Community Champion Award at the end-of-season awards in May, when he committed his immediate future to Palace.
However, he will not want reminding of his recent performance at the Euro Under-21 Championship with England.
The right-back endured a difficult time in Italy, where Aidy Boothroyd overlooked him for the Young Lions’ last two group matches after his late own goal in the opener against France led to a 2-1 loss.
