Crystal Palace will wait until summer to sign Man Utd defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Crystal Palace are prepared to wait until the summer before making a genuine attempt to sign Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, The Sun report.

Wan-Bissaka was completely out-of-favour under manager Erik ten Hag before the World Cup break. He played just four competitive minutes and was a regular on the bench.

However, the 25-year-old has had an impressive turnaround after the season restart. He has been a regular starter at right-back with first-choice Diogo Dalot being injured.

Dalot has yet to make his return to training following a thigh injury and it appears quite clear that Wan-Bissaka will stay at United beyond January, barring a surprise turn of events.

Hence, Palace have no chance of signing him with their limited budget. They are willing to wait until the summer transfer window before approaching to re-sign their graduate.

Wan-Bissaka could be sold by Man Utd this summer

Wan-Bissaka struggled to break into the line-up before the World Cup. Dalot was almost an undisputed starter and missed just one game against Fulham due to suspension.

This led to suggestions that Wan-Bissaka could be shown the exit door in January for a quality replacement but the right-back has managed to redeem himself.

The £90,000-a-week star has been defensively efficient on most occasions. The 3-2 defeat at Arsenal was probably the only time where he let the team down with his awareness and positioning.

He was superb in winning one-on-one duels against Gabriel Martinelli, but was at fault for two goals conceded. Hence, we won’t be surprised if he is replaced in the summer.

Wan-Bissaka has lacked the offensive threat that Dalot provides. His crossing has also been non-existent in most games. Ten Hag has a big decision to make on him at the end of the season.
