This would be a massive upgrade for United who have had to endure seeing Ashley Young play at right back for most of the season.
Diogo Dalot is still a work in progress whilst Antonio Valencia is set to leave the club after 10 years at the club.
Manchester United have also lined up Paris Saint Germain right back Thomas Meunier in case their pursuit of Wan-Bissaka is unsuccessful.
Meunier, 27 is disappointed with the lack of quality playing time at the Parc Des Princes and is looking to move on from the Ligue 1 champions.
“It’s something that could suit me,” Meunier told Le Parisien.
“I don’t think the club would make a lot of money from me, actually.
“I have a market value, but I’m a defender, I play one game out of three and I’m turning 28.
“There have been phone calls since January with interested clubs.
“There are a dozen clubs, all of which are in the top five of their leagues.”
