Manchester United have been after Aaron Wan-Bissaka for some time and this morning it was confirmed that the former Crystal Palace player was now a Red Devil. What will this mean for United as they try and look for a different chapter in their history and quash recent troubles that seem to have engulfed the team since Sir Alex Ferguson’s resignation.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s career at United started off brilliantly as the team seemingly could not lose when his feel good factor tactics and play lifted the side from the gloominess surrounding Jose Mourinho. But United finished the season very poorly and the Norwegian’s pedigree was being rightly questioned. Had United jumped the ship too quick in offering him a 3 year contract, it did seem like it. However something that Solsjkaer does deserve is to have a proper summer transfer window afforded to him before he is truly judged. Now he has this he has swooped for Wan-Bissaka and if reports are to be led to be true United have paid £50m for their man. Decent money in this day and age for football transfers.
Wan Bissaka will play at right back for the club and he is only 21 with huge potential, it is thought that he will be earning £80,000 a week, so a massive increase on his reported £10,000 a week with Palace.
It is no secret that despite Palace having a good to average season that their defence had a very good one compared to their final league position. Palace finished in 12th place and the Eagles conceded 53 goals but that was the 10th best defensive record in the Premier League.
United have signed a player who seems to play beyond his years, movement and judgement are sound and he likes to lead by example, he could well be the captain of the club within a few seasons. The huge potential is there and let’s not forget that he was voted as Crystal Palace’s best player of the season.
For the player a move to United represents a dream come true and it will only be a matter of time before he breaks through to the England national team. He has played at under 21 level but never for the seniors. Playing at United will surely afford him that chance.
Solskjaer then has signed Daniel James an attacking winger and Wan-Bissaka for his first two signings in the summer window, both British players and it will be interesting to see who he signs next as he tries to turn the page and enter a different chapter for the famous club.
