Manchester City reportedly intend to hijack Manchester United move for the Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Eagles defender is rumoured to be one of the top transfer targets for Pep Guardiola ahead of the new season as Spanish boss plans to strengthen the weak areas of his teams, with a new defensive midfielder has also been a priority for the former Barcelona man.

Man United were widely considered to be frontrunners to secure services of Wan-Bissaka. However, they may have turned their focus elsewhere as Diogo Dalot has been regularly performing for the Red Devils since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

According to the Daily Mail, the Citizens intend to follow up their interest in the 21-year-old right-back by making a bid, and they also plan to increase their home ground quota.

Wan-Bissaka is regarded as one of the brightest talents in English despite only making his debut for the Eagles in the second half of last campaign.

Eagles head-coach Roy Hodgson recently revealed that his side will have to consider big-money offers tabled for the England Under-21s defender, who has been valued at £40m mark.

Meanwhile, another defender Man Utd have been linked with a move this summer has been Kalidou Koulibaly, Joachim Andersen and Milan Skriniar as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to be keen on to strengthen ahead of the next season in order to compete for the Premier League title.
