Crystal Palace plot move for Wilfried Zaha

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United are set to receive an offer from Crystal Palace for Wilfried Zaha.

The £15m signing left Crystal Palace for Old Trafford last summer, but made just two substitute appearances before being shipped out on loan to Cardiff City.

He didn't make much impact there either, and will return to United to begin preseason training once Louis Van Gaal takes charge. But the Daily Mail reports that Crystal Palace, Zaha's former club, will ask United if they'd be willing to sell him back or loan him.

Zaha came through the academy system at Palace, helping his boyhood club to promotion to the Premier League in his final game as an Eagle.

That was under former Palace boss Ian Holloway, but the report claims Tony Pulis is also a big fan of the winger, and will lodge the enquiry when he returns from his TV punditry role at the World Cup.

Zaha found it difficult to make an impact at Old Trafford under David Moyes, and it will be equally as challenging to stake a claim when Van Gaal takes charge.

The Dutchman is expected to be extremely busy in the transfer market, and has been linked with moves for a number of wingers - including his Netherlands international Memphis Depay.

Even if he doesn't sign more competition, Zaha will still have to beat out the likes of Adnan Januzaj, Juan Mata, Antonio Valencia, and Nani for a starting spot.
