Manchester United have today confirmed that they have signed Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.
The full-back has spoken to the club’s official website talking about how honoured he feels.
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.
I can’t wait to get going and integrated into the squad. I will have a short break now after the European Championships but I’m looking forward to starting training with the manager and my new team-mates on the pre-season tour.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sung the praises of the 21-year-old, who recently revealed that he was a boyhood United fan.
Aaron is one of the best upcoming defenders in the Premier League. He has the right work ethic, talent and mentality to play for Manchester United and he fits exactly the type of player that we are looking to bring into the squad to help us improve and push on further.
Aaron is a young, hungry player and eager to learn and that’s important at his age. I am delighted he has signed with us and we look forward to continuing his tremendous development so far.
Statistically speaking, Wan-Bissaka had an excellent campaign with Palace last season, the club where he started his career at, and clearly has potential to be an important player for United.
