Crystal Palace hope to win the race to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United, sources have told 90 Minutes.
The 25-year-old has struggled with injuries so far this season and has only appeared in one game under Erik ten Hag.
90 Minutes revealed in early December that United would approve Wan-Bissaka’s departure as they look to improve their options at right-back, and a number of Premier League sides have since registered interest.
West Ham and Wolves are keen on Van Busaka – the latter looking to bolster their squad under new manager Julen Lopetegui and provide competition for Nelson Semedo – but 90 Minutes understands that Palace will initially return to the on-loan defender. Looking forward to signing.
Wan-Bissaka first joined Palace as an 11-year-old and played most of his youth career as a winger, eventually transitioning into a no-nonsense full-back.

After a breakout 2019/20 campaign, in which he earned a reputation for shutting down the Premier League’s elite wingers and won Palace’s player of the year award, Van Busaka secured a £50m move to United.
He was a regular under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for two-and-a-half seasons, though has barely been around under Ralf Rijkaan and Ten Hague.
Palace did not initially sign a direct replacement for Van Busaka, although they will bring back fellow academy graduate Nathaniel Clyne from Liverpool on a free transfer next year. He and Joel Ward have usually started at right back for the Eagles.
