The England Under-21 international is set to become a Red Devils player, having being pictured posing in a United shirt after completing his medical with the club.
It is understood a £50million fee has been agreed with Crystal Palace for his transfer, making the big-money move after just one full season of Premier League football.
That price makes him the third most expensive full-back in football, after Atletico Madrid’s Lucas Hernandez and Manchester City’s Benjamin Mendy, and has got plenty of eyebrows raised.
talkSPORT host Adrian Durham described splashing £50m on the 21-year-old as a ‘crazy’ decision from United, given his lack of experience and that he is yet to even make a senior England cap.
But Cole believes his big price tag will soon be forgotten once he gets back on the pitch.
Speaking to Ian Abrahams, the United legend said: “Not being disrespectful to Ashley [Young] or Antonio [Valencia], because they both did a fantastic job at right back, but this is a young kid who is going to give Manchester United many, many years of service.
Adrian Durham talks about Aaron Wan-Bissaka's price tag to join Manchester United
“He’s done extremely well at Crystal Palace and the good thing, for me, is he’s a Man United fan as well.
“Nowadays, everyone has a big fee. Hopefully Aaron can just go there an embrace it.
“He’ll soon realise Manchester United is not a normal football club, it’s a club of great tradition, great history, it’s supported around the world and it’s an honour to play for such a great club.
“In Aaron’s case it’s a massive, massive leap, in one season doing extremely well for Crystal Palace and then moving to Manchester United.
