Aaron Wan-Bissaka will wear the number 29 at Manchester United when he completes his £50million transfer from Crystal Palace, according to reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identified the England Under-21 star as his top target after landing Daniel James from Swansea City, and is set to make him the most expensive full-back of all time.
Wan-Bissaka completed his medical on Wednesday at the Red Devils’ Carrington training facilities.
The defender is set to take the vacant number 29, which was previously worn by Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha when he was at Manchester United.
Zaha recently spoke out about Wan-Bissaka in a Palace documentary where he provided an insight into what the defender is really like.
“Unless you speak to him, he will not say a word,” said Zaha. “Literally, he’s in the changing room quiet.
“But he does his speaking on the pitch, really. That’s why everyone likes him. He doesn’t chirp up much.
“He just comes in, does what he has to do, plays his game, plays well and goes home.
“The games he’s come in, the players he’s played against, I was kinda shocked because it’s just like, ‘oh, he’s playing against [Alexis] Sanchez today’.
“He just deals with it casually. I like his mentality.
“That’s how I am when I go on the pitch, no matter what kit you’re wearing, I will not fear your team because of what you’re wearing, I’ll play the same way.
“And that’s what I feel he does, he’ll take on whoever, he’ll tackle whoever, and that’s why I rate him as much as I do.”
