Crystal Palace: Dean Jones drops huge Aaron Wan-Bissaka claim

Crystal Palace: Dean Jones drops huge Aaron Wan-Bissaka claim -Crystal Palace News

Transfer insider Dean Jones has made a significant claim regarding Crystal Palace and the possible return of Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka. 

The lowdown: Difficult switch

Having risen to prominence at Selhurst Park, the 24-year-old right-back made a £50m move to Manchester United in 2019 (BBC).

Since then, the Englishman has struggled to recapture his best form in 126 outings for the Old Trafford club and failed to appear in any of the last five Premier League fixtures in 2021/22.

Links with a move back to south London have emerged recently, and it appears that an Eagles return could well be a possibility…

The latest: ‘Palace are interested’ in Wan-Bissaka

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones stated that Palace would be keen to bring Wan-Bissaka back to Selhurst Park to work under Patrick Vieira.

The journalist said: “It’s going to be a massive six weeks for him once Ten Hag gets all of the players back in, because it will determine very quickly whether he will stay or not. Then they’ve got to figure out where he can go.

“Crystal Palace are interested, but financially, they have to find something to work for them. It would be a massive step back if he ends up back at Crystal Palace next season.”

The verdict: Problem solved

Despite Palace enjoying a positive first campaign under Vieira as they finished 12th in the Premier League, having beaten United on the final day, there remains room for improvement in the squad.

The right-back incumbents are Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Ward and Martin Kelly. The former ranked a lowly 16th in WhoScored‘s ratings of the Eagles’ squad this season, while the latter didn’t feature at all in the top flight, so it’s little surprise that the club might want to reinforce their options in this part of the pitch.

Despite enduring a difficult season in which he has received plenty of criticism, Wan-Bissaka has also been hailed by Harry Maguire for his ‘brilliant’ attributes. Also, at just 24, he still has plenty of time to revitalise his career with a return to Selhurst Park, just like Wilfried Zaha did after an abortive spell at Old Trafford.
