Wilfried Zaha linked with United exit; Newcastle waiting

Published Add your comment

Wilfried Zaha is set to leave Old Trafford, with Newcastle emerging as the new favourites to sign the winger, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 21-year-old wide-man is thought to be available at close to £7 million, and Newcastle and Crystal Palace are leading the chase, whilst Nottingham Forest are said to be keen on a loan deal.

Zaha's fall

Once considered one of the brightest young English players, along with Raheem Sterling, Zaha has found himself surplus to requirements under new United boss Louis van Gaal.

Manchester United bought Zaha for a reported £10 million plus add ons in January of 2013, before immediately loaning the youngster back to the Eagles.

Zaha at Palace

The winger produced some impressive performance for Palace, and almost single handedly fired them into the Premier League in the 2012/13 Championship play-offs. However since joining United he has struggled to make the first team and was forced to go out on loan last season to Cardiff City to gain experience.

Despite the enthusiasm of Zaha his future at the club hangs on a thread, and it won't have been helped by reports today claiming that Van Gaal is set to wield the axe of seven first-team players.
