Wilfried Zaha would "love" to go home, says Bolasie

Published Add your comment

Wilfried Zaha's Manches United career has failed to get off the ground since his £15million move from Crystal Palace last January and his former teammate believes a return to south London would appeal to him.

Yannick Bolasie and Zaha were the wing wizards that had a huge part in the Eagles gaining promotion to the Premier League last season via the playoffs, and the latter's form was so good it earned him a senior England cap and his big-money switch to Old Trafford.

However, the 21-year-old's undoubted talent has so far failed to blossom under David Moyes and he has yet to make a single Premier League appearance for the reigning champions.

This failure to break into the first team has led to Zaha being linked with a loan move away from Manchester United in a bid to help him rediscover the form that saw him tear through Championship defences last season, winning games almost singlehandedly.

Whether he is granted a loan move or not, Bolasie believes his old teammate would love to go back to Selhurst Park for a while to help get back his mojo.

"I think Wilf would probably love to come back down here and be back at home," he told talkSPORT.

"Also not forgetting the fact we’re playing in the Premier League which is a bonus. If he could come back that would be legendary."

Despite believing a return to Crystal Palace for their former star would make both parties happy, Bolasie is not naive when it comes the workings of the Premier League and knows that what you want is almost never what you get.

"But everyone moves on, everyone’s got different plans in their career so if he doesn’t then that’s just football for you."
