Wilfried Zaha could return to Crystal Palace

Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace will consider re-signing Wilfried Zaha if Manchester United decide to sell the out-of-favour winger. The 21-year-old England international has made just four appearances for the Red Devils since completing his £10m move to Old Trafford in January 2013, while he spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff City, who were relegated to the Championship last month.

The Croydon Advertiser have been informed that Palace will look to buy the talented wide-man if United decide to cut their losses. But the Eagles will only re-sign Zaha if the deal suits all parties.

"It depends on what the new Man Utd manager wants," a Crystal Palace source is quoted as saying. "You can’t not be a fan of Wilfried when he plays well.

"The circumstances for the player and the money would have to be right."

Palace boss Tony Pulis is a keen admirer of the English starlet, who played a pivotal role in helping the south London club earn promotion back to the Premier League in May 2013, and attempted to take him back to Selhurst Park on loan during the January transfer window.

The then-United boss David Moyes did not want Zaha returning to London - and it's currently unclear whether the Scot's successor, Louis van Gaal, regards the youngster as part of his long-term vision for the Premier League giants.

Zaha's stock has fallen considerably over the last 12 months, but Van Gaal may want to take a closer look at the former Palace prodigy before putting him on the transfer list.
