Manchester United boss David Moyes has insisted that Wilfried Zaha does have a future at the club, despite rumours that he will be one of the players leaving during the expected mass exodus in the summer.
According to Yahoo Sport, the United manager has shed light on the possible future of the youngster, who has been largely frozen out at Old Trafford since his arrival at the end of last season.
Moyes admitted that it there is plenty of competition for the positions out wide, but insists that the reason for Zaha’s loan to Cardiff City is because he is keen to allow the player time to develop.
"There is big competition for those wide areas,” Moyes said.
"When I came in, I had Antonio Valencia, Nani and Ashley Young. Then we had the emergence of Adnan (Januzaj). Shinji (Kagawa) can play off one of the sides.
"I have seen Wilfried training every day as well. I am privy to that.
"We might have got him on loan even earlier but for the (hamstring) injury to Nani. I just wanted to see how that was.
"It is good for him, it is good for his development. Everybody will have a chance to see how he plays.
"The idea is he shows what he can do and comes back a better player for Manchester United."
Recent rumours have suggested that Zaha could be destined to leave the reigning Premier League champions at the end of the current season, as Moyes is intent on completing revamping his squad with a view for challenging for honours next year.
However Moyes’ comments suggest that there may be a future at Old Trafford for Zaha, providing he can demonstrate that he is deserved of one during his time with Cardiff.
