The Eagles rejected an opening £40million bid from United earlier this week and are believed to value the defender at closer to £60m.
Solskjaer is keen to strengthen at right-back after Antonio Valencias departure and believes Wan-Bissaka, who made his debut for Palace just 18 months ago, has the right profile to make the slot his own for the next decade.
United are said to be preparing a second improved bid for the right-back but are likely to switch their attention elsewhere if Palace hold out for the full £60m.
That would be almost double the amount United paid for Victor Lindelof in 2017 when they made him their most expensive defender of all-time.
However, the Daily Mail claim Solskjaer wants United to meet Palaces valuation as he feels Wan-Bissakas price will only increase further over the course of the next 12 months.
