Crystal Palace could face La Liga competition for Manchester United target

Crystal Palace are reportedly considering a loan move to take Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka back to Selhurst Park - according to reports.

Crystal Palace are reportedly considering a loan move to take Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka back to Selhurst Park - according to reports.

The Athletic have suggested Patrick Vieira is keen to secure the former Eagles full-back on loan with a permanent move to follow at the end of the season.

Wan-Bissaka made 46 appearances for the Eagles after making his debut under Roy Hodgson in a 1-0 home defeat against Tottenham Hotspur in February 2018.

A move to Old Trafford for a reported initial fee of around £45million was to follow in the summer of 2019 and the 24-yer-old has endured a mixed time at the home of the 13-time Premier League champions.

After making 26 appearances in all competitions last season, Wan-Bissaka looks set to leave the Red Devils as new manager Erik ten Hag prepares to put his own stamp on his newly-inherited squad.

Palace seem to keen to a deal for their former star and Eagles boss Vieira refused to comment on reports when the interest was reported towards the back end of last season.

He said: “I don’t want to make any comment, he’s a United player. I know he came through the academy here and people love him for what he did for Crystal Palace, but he is a United player,”

However, the Manchester Evening News have reported the defender has been offered to a Spanish club.

After dismissing an approach for Diego Dalot from an unnamed La Liga outfit, the report suggested that United would be open to negotiation over a deal for Wan-Bissaka, who was ‘informed he was no part of Erik ten Hag’s plans’.
