Manchester United expect to clinch a £60 million (about R1.08 billion) deal to sign Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the next 48 hours.
United have already had two bids for the 21-year-old rejected, leaving England Under-21 manager Aidy Boothroyd deeply frustrated about how it has unsettled the right back at a key moment in his career.
Wan-Bissaka – who will become the world’s most expensive fullback when the deal is completed – made several mistakes against France on Tuesday, including an own goal that has left England in danger of being eliminated from Euro 2019.
Boothroyd has been irritated by “the noise” that has surrounded Wan-Bissaka and, ahead of a must-win game against Romania, he spoke out and insisted the lack of clarity and communication from United has caused confusion.
“I could dodge this question by saying you have to ask him – but I won’t,” said Boothroyd.
