Crystal Palace star Aaron Wan-Bissaka is closing in on a £50million move to Manchester United – the club he supported as a young boy.

Wan-Bissaka came through the Eagles’ south London academy, but a throwback family photo has emerged which reveals his first love to be United. 

Sitting on his mother Elizabeth’s knee, the 21-year-old right back is alongside his brother Kevin and his dad Ambroise, with the young boys both wearing United’s famous red colours.

The Palace star will soon complete his dream £50million move to play for Manchester United

The photograph may come as something of a surprise to Palace fans — the club where he has played all his football, both youth and professional — but will certainly endear him to United fans as he prepares to head north.

Wan-Bissaka got a private jet to Manchester on Wednesday afternoon, where he will now complete a medical and finalise personal terms ahead of his big-money move.

The England Under 21 international will reportedly sign a five-year deal, with the option of a sixth, at United, worth around £80,000-a-week in wages.

This represents a huge increase on his £10k-a-week deal at Palace, where he has only played one full season of Premier League football.

Sportsmail understands United will pay an up-front fee of £45m, with a further £5m in conditional add-ons after the Old Trafford hierarchy agreed a deal with Palace.

The move will be Manchester United’s fifth biggest ever, behind Paul Pogba (£89m), Romelu Lukaku (£75m), Angel di Maria (£59m) and Fred (£52m).
