Done deal: BBC Sport reporter confirms Manchester United have signed £50m star

BBC Sport reporter David Ornstein has confirmed that Manchester United have formally secured the signature of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils agreed on a £50m package with the Eagles earlier this week and the remaining formalities have since been sorted with the player going through a medical and signing a five-year deal.

United have yet to make the deal official but Ornstein has exclusively confirmed that the transfer on his official Twitter account, he wrote:

Wan-Bissaka was pictured (leaked image) wearing the United shirt earlier today and reports have emerged that he would get the number 29 shirt for his debut season at the club.

He is set to earn wages of around £80,000-a-week on a five-year contract, and the club have included the option for a further 12 months. Palace are due to a 10 percent sell-on fee, should United sell the defender for anything more than £50m in the coming years.

Wan-Bissaka is expected to straight-away take up the right-back position for next term and this should witness the departure of Matteo Darmian, who has now become the fourth-choice defender for the role.
