Palace interested in him, and are willing to take the full-back on loan this season, as reported by Sky Sports.
Wan-Bissaka excelled in The Eagles low-block system after he broke into the first team from the academy, impressing with his robust and often extraordinary tackling ability.
After 46 appearances in the Palace senior side United were convinced to splash £50m on him, banking on him developing the attacking side of his game to the required standard.
However, after struggling last season the 24-year-old lost his place to Diogo Dalot, and this trend is likely to continue when Erik ten Hag picks his team to face Brighton in their opening fixture.READ MORE ON MAN UTDRED DEVILS LATEST Gary Neville 'disappointed' with Ronaldo, De Jong 'WAR with agent'
Wan-Bissaka has two years left on his current contract with the club holding an option to extend it for a further 12 months.
At present, Palace have veteran Joel Ward and former Liverpool star Nathaniel Clyne at right-back.
Clyne was picked at right-back for Palace's opener against Arsenal, which they lost 2-0, but a more youthful option may work better for manager Patrick Vieira's system.

He said: "Names are difficult to talk about.
"We already have a couple of good players down the right who are performing well."
Palace have enjoyed great success with Tyrick Mitchell at left-back, with his defensive displays earning him a place in the England team at the end of last season.
Mitchell and Wan-Bissaka share similar profiles in terms of their defensive abilities, which could convince Vieira to pull the trigger and ask Palace to bring the former Palace man back to Selhurst Park.

Magics Markelle Fultz, Cole Anthony available vs. Raptors to close out back-to-back
Orlando Magic guards Cole Anthony and Markelle Fultz were available for Saturday’s road game at the Toronto Raptors, the second night of a back-to-back.
Their status entering the matchup was under question with both players returning from injuries in Wednesday’s 125-108 home loss to the Atlanta Hawks and playing more than expected in Friday’s 107-96 road loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Anthony had 19 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists in 28 minutes while Fultz finished with 10 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists in 29 minutes.
Fultz was expected to be held to a restriction of about 20 minutes and Anthony was expected to be held to a minutes restriction as well, but both finished the game as the Magic looked to make a late comeback.
“A lot of it, towards the backend, we decided to make one quick push for the game,” coach Jamahl Mosley said. “They ended up staying out there a little longer than I would’ve liked to. But I really loved their fight, resiliency and their wanting to go after it the way they did. That’s who we have to continue to be.”
It was Fultz’s first time playing back-to-back nights since December 2020. He missed most of the 2020-21 and 2020-21 seasons after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in January 2021, returning this past February.
It’s common for teams to limit players’ minutes and participation in games on back-to-back nights after returning from prolonged absences because of injuries.
Anthony and Fultz entered Saturday’s matchup with an undisclosed minutes restriction.
“We’re going to monitor that,” Mosley said pregame. “They’re still coming back after being away for so long, making sure we’re careful in how we hold their minutes.”
Mo Bamba (back spasms), Wendell Carter Jr. (strained right plantar fascia), Gary Harris (strained right hamstring), Jonathan Isaac (left knee injury recovery), Chuma Okeke (left knee soreness) and Jalen Suggs (right ankle soreness) sat.
The Magic entered Saturday on a season-worst seven-game losing streak.
“Despite what’s happening in these moments of losses, this group has an unbelievable chance for so much potential and growth,” Mosley said. “When the chemistry clicks, it’s going to be very special. It’s going to take some time to get those puzzle pieces in place, but these guys recognize it and understand it. That’s what we’re growing towards as these guys continue to get better.”
They’ll get a rest day Sunday before kicking off a five-game homestand vs. the Milwaukee Bucks Monday at Amway Center.
