Man United legend Gary Neville thinks that Aaron Wan-Bissaka would be great a transfer for Man Utd but he won’t cost less than £50million.
The departure of Antonio Valencia and the poor performances of Ashley Young last season means that Manchester United are in the hunt of a Right Back in the summer transfer window.
We have been linked to Crystal Palace’s break-out star Aaron Wan-Bissaka for much of the season.
The 21-year-old has been an exceptional performer for the Roy Hodgson’s side in the Premier League. Also given the fact that he’s young and homegrown, the links to Manchester United were going to come in at some point of the time.
But, would Aaron Wan-Bissaka be a good investment for Manchester United? Is the 21-year-old good enough to start for us every week?
Here’s what Gary Neville had to say on the matter:
“He’s a massive talent and the club, to be fair, have always signed young, emerging British talent.
“I don’t think that should change and it would seem to me that the club would like to go back down that route and he is one.
“The price is always going to be big because clubs are wise now to it, you can’t pinch players off clubs for £5m or £6m.
“They are wise to it and have the Premier League funding of £100-odd million so they don’t need to panic, they don’t need extra £5m or £10m – they want £50m or £60m.
“Leicester will be the same for [Ben] Chilwell and [Harry] Maguire or [James] Maddison. All these mid-tier clubs won’t let players go for £5m, £6m, £8m, £10m now.”
We have already talked about this before and there’s no way Wan-Bissaka is going to cost us anything less than £50m.
However, given his massive talent and potential, would it be a wise move to invest big money on him? If he lives up to his potential, he could be a pillar for us for the next decade or so!
