Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka is “bound” to be affected by talk of a transfer to Manchester United, says England Under-21s boss Aidy Boothroyd.
Right-back Wan-Bissaka, 21, is reportedly wanted by United with talks ongoing over a potential £50m move.
He is currently at the European Under-21 Championship and scored an own goal in England’s 2-1 loss to France.
“When that speculation is flying around it is bound to turn your head,” said Boothroyd.
“For a young player – all he knows is Crystal Palace academy and Crystal Palace – it would be daft not to say that in some way he must think about it.
“What I will say is, because he doesn’t say too much, you don’t get to find out too much. He keeps things to himself and is a very private guy.”
