Crystal Palace full back Aaron Wan-Bissaka has completed his medical at Manchester United ahead of his expected £50m move.
On Wednesday, United had a bid of £45m plus £5m worth of appearance-related add-ons accepted by the Eagles, with the Englishman then travelling up to the Red Devils' training facilities that evening to undergo the first part of his medical.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka's transfer to Manchester United will be the most expensive deal in history for a player with fewer than 50 senior appearances.— Daniel Storey (@danielstorey85) June 26, 2019
2018/19 was a breakthrough season for Wan-Bissaka, as he made 35 appearances in the Premier League on his way to winning Palace's Player of the Season award, breaking former United player Wilfried Zaha's three-year streak.
Indeed, Zaha was actually integral to the negotiations between the two clubs for this deal, with United managing to maintain their 25% sell-on clause for the Ivorian winger.
After earning a meagre £10,000-a-week in south London - making him the lowest paid member of Roy Hodgson's first team squad - Wan-Bissaka is set to sign a lucrative five-year deal at Old Trafford worth around £80,000-a-week, with an option for one further year included.

With Friday's announcement, Wan-Bissaka will become Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's second signing of the summer, following on from the £15m capture of Welsh international Daniel James from Swansea.
