Aaron Wan-Bissaka honoured to join Manchester United

Aaron Wan-Bissaka says he is honoured to be a Manchester United player after completing a big-money move from Crystal Palace.

The 21-year-old defender signed a five-year contract at Old Trafford to become the most expensive uncapped British player of all time.


PA understands 20-time English champions United have paid Palace an initial £45million for the right-back, which could eventually rise to £50million based on add-ons.

The up-front fee makes Wan-Bissaka the fifth biggest signing in the club’s history behind Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Angel Di Maria and Fred.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling and an honour to call myself a Manchester United player and something I know that only a small number of players have the privilege to say,” Wan-Bissaka told the club website.

“Every kid wants to play for a team like this. I think I will improve every step and learn different things around new team-mates.

“Man United is a big club, a big family, a big fan base, and I think they all stick together and are so tight together.

“I can see that I have made (my family) proud with this decision and where I have come from, how the journey started, and that makes me kick on and carry on.

“I am going to give everything for the club and for the fantastic fans and I can’t wait to get started.”

England Under-21 international Wan-Bissaka, whose contract includes an option for a sixth season, made his senior debut in February 2018 and appeared 46 times in all competitions for the Eagles.
