Manchester United have paid a record fee worth £50 million for Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.


The defender swapped London for Manchester in a move that has been brewing for the past few weeks. It is understood that the player is expected to take up the number 29 jersey.


Wan-Bissaka is regarded as one of the best young fullbacks in the game and his transfer completes a remarkable year for the defender. Converted from a winger to the defense at the start of last season the 21-year-old excelled for the Eagles.


He would be expected to replace outgoing captain Antonio Valencia and likely to be thrust straight into the first team. This transfer was hastened so that the player would be able to partake in pre-season.


His marauding runs from deep and defensive solidity made him one of the most sought after defender this summer. Wan-Bissaka is perhaps the most high profile rightback to make a move in England since the signing of Jose Bosingwa by Chelsea several years ago.


Bosingwa had just been named in the Euro 2008 team of the tournament and came with lots of expectations. However, he flattered to deceive at the club despite winning several trophies at the club.

Wan-Bissaka can look upto Kyle Walker as a good example as the player has elevated his game since making his big money move to Manchester City two seasons ago.


Manchester United have been in the market for new signings after a disappointing season.


There are also reports that the club are close to signing Sporting Lisbon ace Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese has agreed on personal terms with only a transfer fee remaining for the move to be completed.


Manchester United appear to be on the right track and their fans should be happy with the players signed by the club so far.
