Man Utd target Aaron Wan-Bissaka warned over transfer: Liverpool comparison made | Football | Sport


Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants the right-back at Old Trafford this summer.

And Manchester United are believed to have had a £40million bid rejected by the Eagles who value the England Under-21 international at £60m.

But Palace legend John Salako has told Wan-Bissaka to look at the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wilfried Zaha before him who moved to big clubs too early in their career.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is now established at Liverpool but never really hit his stride at Arsenal.

And Zaha was sold back to Palace from United after moving early in his career.

“He’s got the world at his feet. But my only concern is that we had Wilfried Zaha leave at a young age and he didn’t cope,” Solako told Love Sport radio.

“He wasn’t mature enough and didn’t really settle in at Man United. He ended up coming back and has had the best spell of his career since he came back.

“He’s obviously another one linked with moving away but I’m just a bit concerned with Aaron. It’s been his first full season and it’s been absolutely magnificent.

“He couldn’t have been lying in bed and dreamed of a better debut season. He probably needs more games.

“I would compare him to Nathaniel Clyne who came through the system at Palace and was tremendous.

“He played 120-odd games and then went to Southampton, Liverpool, played for England and everything seemed to fall into place for him because he had that maturity.

“He knew his job and he was confident in himself and his game. It’s too early for Aaron. He needs another season.

“I’m not surprised United have come in because they could probably get him cheaper and they think they need to do something now.

“You remember with Walcott and those types of players who came through at Southampton – even [Gareth] Bale or [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain – they came early and it took them years to find their feet.

“I don’t know why teams don’t buy them and then leave them with their club and loan them back for a season or two, just to get that maturity.”

Wan-Bissaka impressed for Palace this season, making 35 Premier League appearances.

United are looking for a right-back with Antonio Valencia leaving the club and Ashley Young in the twilight of his career.
