Gary Neville has approved Manchester United’s reported interest in Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with the Red Devils over the last few months with recent reports indicating United are preparing to make a £25million bid for the defender.

Wan-Bissaka made 39 appearances in all competitions for Palace this term as he enjoyed a brilliant campaign with the Eagles.

“He’s a massive talent and the club, to be fair, have always signed young, emerging British talent,” Neville told the Evening Standard.

“I don’t think that should change and it would seem to me that the club would like to go back down that route and he is one.

“The price is always going to be big because clubs are wise now to it, you can’t pinch players off clubs for £5m or £6m.

“They are wise to it and have the Premier League funding of £100-odd million so they don’t need to panic, they don’t need extra £5m or £10m – they want £50m or £60m.

“Leicester will be the same for (Ben) Chilwell and (Harry) Maguire or (James) Maddison. All these mid-tier clubs won’t let players go for £5m, £6m, £8m, £10m now.”
