The 21-year-old reportedly cost the Red Devils £50m. He is set to arrive at Old Trafford on a five-year contract, valued at £80,000-per-week.
Wan-Bissaka emerged as one of the most sought after right-backs in the Premier League after his heroics in the Eagles backline. He got his break into the senior squad at a very young age of 19.
Ever since his debut in February 2018, the right-back has developed into a formidable figure in his team’s defence. He is vigilant at the back while at the same time a huge threat going forward.
He is fast, strong and times his tackles to perfection – a skill not many youngsters pick up on this quick. Wan Bissaka’s greatest trait might be his maturity and discipline at his age.
The England U21 international is calm under pressure and has demonstrated the ability to make the right decision in key moments. He is still very young and has the years in front of him to become even better at Manchester.
Crystal Palace has managed to include a 10% sell-on clause into his transfer deal if the player is sold for more than £50m later.
