Wan-Bissaka Is The New Devil
Manchester United are finally getting their man. After chasing him for several months, by all accounts Aaron Wan-Bissaka will become new Man United player on Thursday, once his medicals passed and he signs the contract. According to several reports on Wednesday, Wan-Bissaka will sign a five-year contract that will run through June 2024 and he will be earning 80k pounds per week. His current wages were 10k per week, as he was earning the least amount of money in Crystal Palace’s first team.
Also, there are numerous different numbers mentioned about the transfer fee. The one that was mentioned the most was 50 million pounds, but some sources claim it is closer to 60 million with all the potential add-ons.
Former Man United player Wilfried Zaha had some interesting words about his (now) former teammate.
“Unless you speak to him, he will not say a word. He does his speaking on the pitch. That’s why everyone likes him. He doesn’t chirp up much. He just comes in, does what he has to do, plays his game, plays well and goes home”, Zaha said of Wan-Bissaka.
Could Ben Yedder Join United?
France Football claim Manchester United are interested in signing Wissam Ben Yedder from Sevilla. The Israeli forward has a €40m release clause and Sevilla could not stop the transfer from happening if it were unlocked. According to the same source, Man United are willing to offer this amount, but a deal depends on whether Romelu Lukaku leaves this summer.
Ben Yedder is the player all Man United fans remembered in spring of 2018, when he scored twice at Old Trafford in the span of just four minutes, to knock the Devils out of the Champions League in the round of 16. Ben Yedder will turn 29 this August and this might not be the wisest transfer from that point of view.
What Is New About Lukaku?
And if Man United really want to get Ben Yedder, they will have to sell Romelu Lukaku, but so far that does not seem like an easy task. Inter are the only truly interested club, which is good, but then again, they cannot really pay as much as Man United would like. According to Di Marzio, Manchester United are prepared to hand Lukaku to Inter Milan for a €10m two-year loan with a €60m obligation to buy. That is mentioned now because Inter cannot afford a €70m upfront fee that the Devils want. Spreading the cost over three years could be the breakthrough in this potential deal and that way Inter would give themselves two years of potentially great results and great business in the market to raise the necessary money.
However, that brings another question. If Man United would need to sell Lukaku to sign Ben Yedder or any other striker, then that will not be possible, as the money would arrive two years from now. Still, Man United have plenty of money and they could get past this problem and also be safe that Lukaku will be sold in the end.
