Manchester United may have to double their valuation of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to sign the full-back, as there currently remains a huge difference between their stance and Crystal Palace’s.
Palace feels under absolutely no pressure to sell Wan-Bissaka and would want a fee of over £70m to even consider the prospect.
United had been hoping to complete the signing for at most £40m, but that now looks way off.
It is understood other clubs have already been put off by such a high valuation, but United will persist with the pursuit.
United are set for a busy summer with central defence another area identified for reinforcement.
