‘The Boy Is Special’ – Fans On Twitter React To Reports That City Are Among Trio Of Clubs Pursuing Palace Starlet

Manchester City have been joined by Manchester United and Chelsea in the race to sign Crystal Palace fullback Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to reports in the UK.

The defender only made his senior debut in February last year but has established himself as a regular first-team player under manager Roy Hodgson this campaign.

The Citizens have reportedly been tracking the 21-year-old for a while but both the Blues and United are now also keen as they look to strengthen their options at right-back.

Fans on Twitter believe City should pursue a deal for Wan-Bissaka:

While City may be looking for a long-term replacement for Kyle Walker, United are looking to replace captain Antonio Valencia who is out of contract in the summer.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are close to offloading Davide Zappacosta to Lazio and are seeking a backup for Cesar Azpilicueta.

For all three clubs, it is believed a summer transfer is more realistic than a deal during the January transfer window.
