He becomes the second summer signing made by boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after Daniel James joined from Swansea. Apparent leaked pictures and video of Wan-Bissaka wearing next season’s United shirt began to appear on social media on Friday, seeming to indicate that the player had passed his medical and agreed terms.
Wan-Bissaka was part of the England squad that exited the Under-21 European Championship in the group stage last week. The right-back endured a difficult time in Italy, where boss 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.
Wan-Bissaka is yet to make his senior international debut and only made his first appearance for Palace 16 months ago. He’s made 46 appearances in all competitions for Palace where he won the club’s Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season awards.11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH.
