The January transfer window is slowly, and finally, hotting up what with the usual suspects stepping up their efforts to source the necessary players who will be essential components for the remainder of the season. The same is true of the English heavyweights as well, so let us take a look at the top transfer stories for the day for each of the Premier League’s top six sides..
#6 Manchester United
Crystal Palace star in is demand!
Manchester United have started looking for a long-term replacement for Antonio Valencia, and if reports in the Daily Mirror are to be believed, then they will chase Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer, for who’s signature they will fight with Chelsea. The 21-year-old Crystal Palace right-back has left an indelible impression with his seamless adaptation to Premier League football, while also cementing his place in Palace’s first-team. Manchester City have reportedly already been keeping tabs on the England U21 international, and now, United and Chelsea have followed suit.
Speaking of Valencia, the right-back has told United that he will stay at Old Trafford until the summer, as per The Times. The 33-year-old’s contract runs until season end, and while there is an option to extend, it looks unlikely to happen. Despite that, the Ecuadorian is reportedly happy to stay in Manchester until the end of the season.
