Gary Neville supports the pursuit of Aaron Wan-Bissaka but warns about the cost of the Crystal Palace star



Neville is a fan of Wan-Bissaka, who was named Player of the Year of the Crystal Palace after an excellent season

Gary Neville hailed Crystal Palace's young Aaron Wan-Bissaka as a "great talent" and believes that Manchester United should pursue him.

Wan-Bissaka is one of the most popular young players in European football and has had an excellent first full season at Selhurst Park.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperately tries to see his team again after a disastrous end to the season, winning only two of the last 12 games in all competitions and identifying the right back as one of his top priorities.

British legend Neville, who has made 602 appearances for the club for 19 years, has supported his former team in the search for Wan-Bissaka despite the price of 40 million pounds.

"He is a great talent and the club, to be honest, has always signed young British emerging talents," he told the Evening Standard.

"I don't think it should change and it would seem to me that the club would like to get back on this road and he is one.

"The price will always be great because clubs are wise now, it is not possible to exclude players from clubs for £ 5 million or £ 6 million.

"They are wise and have funding from the Premier League of £ 100-odd millions, so they don't need to panic, they don't need an additional 5 million pounds or 10 million pounds – they want 50 million pounds or 60 million of pounds.

"Leicester will be the same for [Ben] Chilwell and Maguire o [James] Maddison.

All these mid-range clubs will not allow players to go to £ 5m, £ 6m, £ 8m, £ 10m now. "


Gary Neville called the young Palace a "huge talent"

However, Wan-Bissaka, who was named the player of the Eagles' year, said he intends to stay with the club next season.

"The situation only shows that my performances do not go unnoticed," he told Evening Standard.

"But I am with Crystal Palace at the moment. This is where my contract is and this is where I will be next season.

"I have three years left on my contract. He says I'll be there, so that's all I can focus on now."
