Crystal Palace’s hardball negotiations for Aaron Wan-Bissaka have resulted in Manchester United turning their attention elsewhere.
Right-back is a priority position for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men during this summer’s transfer window.
Having excelled for Palace last season, Wan-Bissaka was their top priority but United have now been forced to seek an alternative.
According to the Daily Mail, they are now in discussions with Paris Saint-Germain over a £22m move for Thomas Meunier.
Although Wan-Bissaka had been first choice, the Old Trafford outfit are simply unwilling to meet Palace’s £60m valuation of the 21-year-old.
As a result, United are happy to plump for the Belgian instead in a much cheaper deal.
The 28-year-old is available at a lower cost due to having just one year remaining on his PSG contract and with no talks over an extension forthcoming.

Although Meunier had indicated that he was keen to stay at the Parc des Princes, a summer switch appears ever more likely.
It also seems that England will be his destination as Arsenal and Everton have also expressed an interest in his signature.
