Manchester United winger on his way to Cardiff?

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha's frustrating time at Old Trafford could end with Cardiff City showing interest in a loan move.

The Manchester Evening News reports that the 21-year-old was spotted at a hospital and is ready to have a medical in the Welsh capital to secure a move away from Manchester.

England Under-21 international Zaha was signed from Crystal Palace for £15million by Sir Alex Ferguson in a much-hyped move last January.

Zaha was immediately loaned back to Palace but after joining up with the United squad in the summer has failed to impress Ferguson’s successor, David Moyes, sufficiently to establish himself in the first-team squad.

The Ivory Coast-born Londoner played against Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield victory in August but since then has been limited to a single Capital One Cup outing, and two Premier League appearances off the bench.

The forward was recently on the bench for United’s Under-21s game against Middlesbrough on Monday as it was reported that he had turned up late for the fixture.

Moyes turned down a fresh Palace loan bid for Zaha and was reluctant to let the youngster go anywhere, with wide men Ashley Young and Nani out injured.

However, with Young now available again, it has given Zaha new hope that former Manchester United striker and Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could make a move to bring him to the Welsh capital.

Solskjaer who finds his team fighting relegation will hope that Zaha would help his side lift out of the bottom three.

As for now, Moyes is unwilling to let Wilfried Zaha leave.
