Manchester United is delighted to confirm the signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace. Aaron has signed a five-year contract with an option to extend for a further year.
The 21-year-old defender came through the ranks of Crystal Palace’s academy. He made his professional debut in February 2018 and picked up both the fans’ player of the year award and also the players’ player of the year award in his first full season. Aaron represented England at this year’s UEFA European Under-21 Championship.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Aaron is one of the best upcoming defenders in the Premier League. He has the right work ethic, talent and mentality to play for Manchester United and he fits exactly the type of player that we are looking to bring into the squad to help us improve and push on further.
“Aaron is a young, hungry player and eager to learn and that’s important at his age. I am delighted he has signed with us and we look forward to continuing his tremendous development so far.”
Aaron Wan-Bissaka said: “It’s an unbelievable feeling and an honour to call myself a Manchester United player and something I know that only a small number of players have the privilege to say.
“I can’t wait to get going and integrated into the squad. I will have a short break now after the European Championships but I’m looking forward to starting training with the manager and my new team-mates on the pre-season tour.”

Very much the latter. Looking forward to seeing him play and praying to the deities that he doesn’t pull a Benjamin Mendy, meaning we have to go with... Young... for the rest of the season... again *shudder*it is his old Palace number, dont think it has anything to do with Zaha, unless you wanted to point out the funny coincidence.
FFS, I already have enough trouble with this song sticking in my ear every time Windows give me the option to Lock the Taskbar.Great signing
We need to steal his chant:
“Your winger won’t like it, Wan-Bis-Sa-ka, Wan-Bis-Sa-ka".
