Aaron Wan-Bissaka will receive a ‘seven-fold’ wage increase if he swaps Crystal Palace for Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

Reports on Thursday suggested United have finally agreed a fee with Crystal Palace to take Wan-Bissaka to Old Trafford.

In what Duncan Castles describes as ‘a world-record sum for a specialist full back’. After an opening offer of £25m, United will part with more than double that: £55m.

Castles has ‘a source familiar with the negotiations’ of United’s move for Wan-Bissaka, and is happy to report that they ‘have agreed a fee’ with Crystal Palace.

Despite it seeming a little pricey, Palace had reportedly been demanding £70million with the club knowing there’s a premium on British talent.

A separate report on Thursday in GQ claims Wan-Bissaka will earn £80,000 a week which will take him up to seven times his current wages.

GQ added: ‘Being a Premier League club means Palace aren’t desperate to sell, but they’re right on the edge of the Financial Fair Play limits and they have a vast new – and much needed – main stand to fund.’
