Manchester United have had a bid rejected for one of their prime summer transfer targets, it seems as though the Reds will have to significantly improve their offer.
According to reports, Manchester United have had their latest bid for Crystal Palace sensation Aaron Wan-Bissaka rejected, the ace is one of the best young English talents around and the Old Trafford outfit are keen on starting their major rebuild this summer with the right-back’s signing.
News of United’s bid was revealed by Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol earlier this afternoon, the Red Devils may be driving a hard bargain in their pursuit of Wan-Bissaka, however their low-balls could begin to disrespect and agitate Crystal Palace:
Manchester United have made bid of £50m for Crystal Palace right back Aaron Wan Bissaka. Bid has been rejected. Bid is £35m plus £15m add ons.
Palace not happy with add ons. It is thought they would accept straight £50m bid

Wan-Bissaka would be an ideal signing for United, the Red Devils leaked goals last season and are in dire need of defensive reinforcements – especially at right-back.
The Manchester giants used Ashley Young and Diogo Dalot on the right flank last season but both failed to impress fans with their performances.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer targeting young English talents as the key to his rebuild at Old Trafford, the signing of Wan-Bissaka would be perfect.
Wan-Bissaka is currently on international duty with England’s Under-21s, an investment into the ace now could turn out to be a smart move by United as there’s no doubt that Wan-Bissaka is on the brink of a call up to England’s senior team.
