Manchester United flop Zaha could be available for £7m

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United outcast Wilfried Zaha mah be on the move again this summer, with reports suggesting that he could be made available for just £7 million.

This is according to the Newcastle Chronicle, who further claim that the Premier League giants are looking to sell Zaha at the end of the season, with Toon boss Alan Pardew potentially set to re-ignite his interest in the player.

The same source suggests that Newcastle - who have endured a torrid time in recent weeks with Saturday's 3-0 win over Cardiff putting an end to a run of six straight defeats - would face competition from Crystal Palace - Zaha's former employers - if they were indeed to pursue a deal for the tricky wideman.

Having proved his considerable worth at Championship level for the Eagles, 21-year-old Zaha became Sir Alex Ferguson's final signing as Manchester United boss in January 2013.

He did not get an opportunity to impress straightaway at Old Trafford, however, and was immediately loaned back to Selhurst Park for the remainder of the season as Palace eventually went on to secure promotion to the Premier League thanks to a play-off final victory over Watford at Wembley.

Zaha was brought back into the Manchester United fold when David Moyes succeeded Ferguson last summer, yet he failed to impose himself under the Scot and made just two appearances - both of which came from the substitute's bench - in the Premier League for Manchester United before leaving on loan - this time for Cardiff - once again towards the end of the January transfer window.

Zaha has proved somewhat lacklustre in the Welsh capital too, with his displays doing little to help Cardiff's ultimately unsuccessful battle to avoid an immediate return to the Championship.

While of course a new manager could have a different opinion or indeed different plans for Zaha, it seems as if his days at Manchester United could be drawing to a close.

£7 million may not be a bad price to pay for a player who seems to have plenty of time to prove his worth in the top-flight, however.
