Crystal Palace and Manchester United were set for more talks yesterday over a deal for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The Eagles value their England U21 international right-back at £60million and the initial offers from United have included unappealing add-ons.
But discussions continued on Monday with Wan-Bissaka thought to be keen on a move to Old Trafford and boosting his wages to £80,000 a week.
The Palace youngster has been away with the young Three Lions but boss Aidy Boothroyd recently admitted he thought the transfer talk ramping up had affected the usually ice cool right-back.
“When that speculation is flying around it is bound to turn your head,” Boothroyd said.
“For a young player who all he knows is Crystal Palace academy, Crystal Palace first team it would be daft not to say that in some way he must think about it.
“I would not be truthful if I told you anything other than that.
“I think when you are nearly going to move and all the things that would go through an older person’s head, who is more experienced in life, it would be difficult for them to cope with.”
