Manchester United's target Aaron Wan-Bissaka has named a Chelsea player as one of the best players he faced during season debut in the Premier League.

Wan-Bissaka is on the verge of becoming United's second signing of the summer after the club reportedly agreed on a £50million deal with Crystal Palace for his transfer. 

The Red Devils are allegedly prepared to pay a lump sum of £45million up front for the defender with Palace due an extra £5million in add-ons. 

Speaking in February of this year, Wan-Bissaka named Eden Hazard as the toughest opponent he had faced during his fledgling career.

"He [Hazard] was the toughest," Wan-Bissaka told The Guardian in February. "He’s just busy. I’m not saying I can’t read him, but he does so much on the ball, and off it too.

"He doesn’t just get it and pass it on. He always does something: maybe not be directly against me, but something that affects me somehow, dragging me out of position, freeing someone else up to run at me. He’s so clever, one of the best. At the same time, those are the situations you learn most from."

Further reports claim that Wan-Bissaka agreed to a five-year contract at United worth £80,000 in wages per week and the club has a further option to extend the deal for an additional year.

The youngster only returned from international duty with England's under-21s earlier this week and is due to go on holiday following the completion of his medical at Carrington on Thursday.
