Recently recruited Wilfried Zaha must impress new Manchester United boss David Moyes to mark his place in the first-team for the next season.

On Wednesday morning, it was revealed that Zaha had been included in the pre-season tour to Asia, much to the delight of United fans across the globe bursting to see a glimpse of their new man.

Zaha finished last-term on a high with previous club Crystal Palace arguably single-handedly clinching promotion for the side by netting twice in the play-off semi-final against Brighton and Hove Albion before winning the penalty in the final to grasp promotion to the Premier League. 

Zaha deservedly was awarded the Championship Player of the Year award following consistent high-level performances.

From this, we can certainly see that Zaha has the potential to follow in many greats footsteps. Crystal Palace legend Vince Hilaire likened the player to former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been linked back to United in recent weeks.

However, as Zaha has been given the opportunity to prove his worth on pre-season this will give Moyes a clearer image of his options and a realisation of whether investing on a winger is necessary. 

United's current first-team wingers displayed poor performances last-term, and often were considered to be a reliability. Ryan Giggs was used on a regular basis for parts of the season to fill in for the wingers. Ashley Young was injured in the Manchester derby, and for this reason was ruled out of the rest of the season, perhaps meaning he'd be less of a reliability than consistently poor wingers Antonio Valencia and Luis Nani.

Can United rely on young talent next season or will they need to splash the cash on a world-class winger?
