12noon transfer news LIVE: West Ham sign Fornals, Palace want £70m for Wan-Bissaka, Newcastle takeover progressing well

CRYSTAL PALACE have reportedly slapped a whopping £70MILLION price tag on Manchester United target Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s is said to desire young homegrown talent to base his rebuilding job around – leading to an opening offer of £40m for the player, 21.

The Eagles shunned that bid and believe they have no need to sell the right-back, according to Sky Sports.

And yet it is understood that Wan-Bissaka wants to sign for United.

The opportunity of moving to Old Trafford is not seen as something that can be taken for granted and thus the defender is pushing for a summer move.

Negotiations have hit a stumbling block, though, thanks to Palace’s reported £70m demands.

Whether United can cut the fee down to something more manageable could be a big test of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward’s abilities.
