Manchester United working to sign 'other exciting players' according to leaked email

Aaron Wan-Bissaka became Manchester United's second signing of the summer this week but a leaked email sent by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward suggests he won't be the last player to arrive at Old Trafford before the start of the season.

Wan-Bissaka, who cost an initial £45million from Crystal Palace, joined fellow 21-year-old Daniel James in bolstering manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer's squad.

Solskjaer is looking to build a youthful, more hungry side and an internal email, which was leaked to The Telegraph, shows that Woodward is also on board with this policy.

Woodward wrote in the email: 'Despite the inflated nature of the transfer market and constant speculation and stories, which can be misleading, the recruitment team — in conjunction with the manager — are working calmly behind the scenes to bring in other exciting players that fit their long-term vision for the club.'

The email continued: 'Following the arrival of Daniel James from Swansea earlier this month, I am delighted to confirm that we have signed exciting young defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.

'Aaron fits perfectly with Ole's philosophy and plans for building his team and is a player who will excite our great fans as the season unfolds.'

Wan-Bissaka signed a contract for five years worth £80,000 a week.
