Who Man Utd will sign next after confirming Aaron Wan-Bissaka transfer

MANCHESTER UNITED already have their eyes on their third summer signing after confirming the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.

Swansea City winger Daniel James was first through the door after completing an initial £15m move on June 12.

The Wales international put pen to paper on a long-term contract, capping off his meteoric rise.

Wan-Bissaka finally completed his £50m move from Crystal Palace today after Manchester United were forced to delay the announcement.

He has signed a five-year contract, with the option of a further season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear that Wan-Bissaka typifies his approach in this transfer window.

"Aaron is one of the best upcoming defenders in the Premier League,” he said. “He has the right work ethic, talent and mentality to play for Manchester United and he fits exactly the type of player that we are looking to bring into the squad to help us improve and push on further.

"Aaron is a young, hungry player and eager to learn and that’s important at his age.

"I am delighted he has signed with us and we look forward to continuing his tremendous development so far.”

The club’s third signing is likely to be another up-and-coming talent.

It is likely to be one of two targets, with a new midfielder at the top of Solskjaer’s agenda.

Newcastle United starlet Sean Longstaff is being eyed but could cost up to £25m.

The 21-year-old has only made 13 appearances for the Magpies after breaking into Rafa Benitez’s side last December.

According to Football Insider, United are ready to offer Longstaff a £60,000-a-week contract.

It is claimed Old Trafford chiefs plan to make Longstaff their third summer signing.

The other target that could be next through the door is Sporting Lisbon attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The 24-year-old Portugal international is hot property after an incredible campaign.

He scored 32 goals and provided 18 assists in 53 appearances for Sporting Lisbon.

United have reportedly held talks with Fernandes’ agent but he would be much pricier at £65m.
