Manchester United to Increase Bid for Wan-Bissaka
Manchester United are ready to increase their bid for Aaron Wan-Bissaka to £50 million, according to David McDonnell of the Daily Mirror.

Wan-Bissaka had a fantastic first full season at Selhurst Park after breaking through the academy. He failed to score a goal, however, did register three assists.
Tottenham Looking for Right-Back Competition?
The Japanese defender has spent the last three seasons with Marseille; having joined them in 2016. Last season he scored contributed four assists as the French side missed out on qualifying for the Champions League.
Tottenham are looking for possible replacements at right-back. This is as both Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier have been linked with moves away.
Newcastle Striker Set for a Departure?
The Spaniard had his most successful season to date with Newcastle, scoring 13 goals. As a result, it is no wonder he has been attracting interest from other clubs. His future at St James’ Park could depend on whether manager Rafa Benitez remains at Newcastle.
Furthermore, Perez could be attracted by the prospect of playing Champions League football next season. Valencia finished fourth in La Liga, meaning they qualified automatically for the Champions League group stages.
