Why Aaron Wan-Bissaka must ignore Manchester United's interest

On Thursday, the Guardian reported that Crystal Palace right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka was a potential summer transfer target for Manchester United.

Despite the obvious allure of making the swap to Old Trafford, Wan-Bissaka must ignore United’s interest and focus on developing as a top-class talent at Selhurst Park.

There is no doubting the tremendous potential of Wan-Bissaka, a 21-year-old with maturity well beyond his years.

Yet it is only a season since Wan-Bissaka made his Premier League debut for Palace, and it’s easy to forget that the defender is still very new to senior English football.

Already a week-in, week-out starter for Roy Hodgson, Wan-Bissaka has flourished with consistent game time at Crystal Palace.

Newly-appointed Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer comes with a reputation for ushering in young talent, yet it is clear that Wan-Bissaka will find opportunities far easier to come by in SE25 than in Manchester.

It is often difficult for young players to resist the big name and European allure of sides like Manchester United, but for the sake of Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s development, the 21-year-old must choose to remain at Crystal Palace for the time being.
