Crystal Palace: Eagles favourites to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Crystal Palace: Eagles favourites to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka -Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace are the front-runners to re-sign former Eagles defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer, according to a fresh transfer claim.

The Lowdown: Tough period for Wan-Bissaka

The right-back has endured a tough spell at Manchester United since leaving Palace in 2019, struggling hugely to repeat his performances at Selhurst Park.

Wan-Bissaka made 26 appearances last season but not a single goal or assist came his way, highlighting his struggles in the final third, as United flattered to deceive as a whole in the Premier League.

It looks as though the Englishman has been deemed surplus to requirements by new manager Erik ten Hag, meaning other clubs could swoop this summer.

The Latest: Palace return on the cards?

According to 90min, Palace are the favourites to snap up Wan-Bissaka, although it would only be on loan, at least initially.

The Eagles are described as being in ‘pole position’ to seal a reunion with the 24-year-old, whose current United deal expires in the summer of 2024 and is valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt.

The Verdict: Bring him back

Patrick Vieira will be eyeing up improved squad depth next season and Wan-Bissaka is definitely worth taking a punt on, having once been hailed as ‘the best’ defender in the world in one-on-one situations by Jamie Carragher.

It may simply be that United was a level too high for the former Palace man but he could excel once again back at Selhurst Park, providing competition for Joel Ward and Nathaniel Clyne, both of whom are in their thirties.

A loan move would take the risk element out of the move, too, should Wan-Bissaka struggle, but there was a reason why United paid £50million for him and why he was so highly rated to begin with – Ward himself called his former teammate ‘phenomenal‘.
