Aaron Wan-Bissaka (born 26 November 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a right-back for club Manchester United..
Wan-Bissaka was born in London, England on 26 November 1997 and grew up in New Addington, Croydon, where he attended Good Shepherd school.
Wan-Bissaka was a member of the Crystal Palace academy from the age of 11, where he started out as a winger.
In the summer 2017 pre-season tour, Wan-Bissaka began to feature with the Palace first team under new manager Frank De Boer, playing in a number of friendlies. The Dutchman played a formation with wingbacks, and this new role emphasised Wan-Bissaka's defensive capabilities, eventually leading to him moving from a winger to a full-back. However, he saw chances limited in the first half of the season as De Boer showed a preference to play Timothy Fosu-Mensah or Martin Kelly at right-back, then new manager Roy Hodgson favoured Joel Ward. He was an unused substitute a few times under the new manager, while also starring for the Eagles U23 side.
On 25 February 2018, Wan-Bissaka made his senior debut for Crystal Palace, in the midst of an injury crisis, in a Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur at Selhurst Park which resulted in a 1–0 defeat for Palace. He played all but two minutes of the four Palace matches in March, and won the club's Player of the Month award with 65% of the supporters' votes.
On 20 August 2018, Wan-Bissaka was sent off in a 2–0 loss to Liverpool for denying Mohamed Salah a clear goalscoring opportunity. He was named the club's Player of the Month for August, September, October and March. On 30 April 2019, Wan-Bissaka was named the Crystal Palace Player of the Year for his displays throughout the season.
On 28 June 2019, Manchester United signed him in a deal worth £50 million.
Wan-Bissaka was born in England and is of Congolese descent. Wan-Bissaka made a single appearance for the DR Congo U20 in an 8–0 friendly loss to the England U17s on 7 October 2015. However, he remained eligible to represent the country of his birth and, after impressing for Crystal Palace, Wan-Bissaka was called up to the England U20 squad in March 2018. He was sent off during his debut against Poland, although England still won 1–0.
Wan-Bissaka was called up to the England U21 squad for the first time in September 2018 and made his debut for them on 6 September, playing 90 minutes in a 0–0 draw with the Netherlands at Carrow Road. On 27 May 2019, Wan-Bissaka was included in England's 23-man squad for the 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship..
