Done deal: Manchester United reach complete agreement for second summer signing, £45m star set to sign five-year contract

The Guardian correspondent Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Manchester United have reached a total agreement with Crystal Palace for the signing of defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The right-sided defender has been heavily linked with the Red Devils in the past few weeks and he now appears on the cusp of signing for them with the transfer fee sorted between the sides.

According to The Guardian, United have agreed on an initial £45m package for the Eagles graduate with an additional £5m due to be adjusted in the form of performance-based incentives.

Wan-Bissaka has recently returned from England under-21 duty at the European Championship and a medical is likely to be scheduled during the forthcoming days before the defender heads for a mini-vacation.

The arrival of Wan-Bissaka means that United would have four senior right-back choices with the likes of Ashley Young, Diogo Dalot and Matteo Darmian included.

Out of those, Darmian looks set to part ways with the club while Dalot could be fielded higher up the field, which was the case on some occasions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last term.
