We can only wish him the best in his future endeavors. 

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

He started at Crystal Palace, where he was named Player of the Year for the 2018-19 seasons. Since then, he has moved to Manchester United, where he is expected to stay for many more years.

Experts at feel that Wan-Bissaka is developing attacking qualities that will match beautifully with his defensive skills to produce an all-round player. He was able to tackle one of Chelsea’s finest, Willian, and helped set up Antony Martial’s game in a game they won 2-0. He is not yet at the peak of his career, but like wine, he is only expected to get better as the years elapse.
