Wilfried Zaha admits Crystal Palace feels like home

Published Add your comment

Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha has cast further doubt over his future by admitting Crystal Palace, rather than Old Trafford, feels like home.

The 22-year-old, who the Red Devils signed from Palace for an initial £10 million fee in January 2013, is currently back at Selhurst Park on loan - and told reporters that he is happy being back with the Eagles.

When asked about the possibility of resurrecting his career at Old Trafford, a maturing Zaha was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "I cannot keep that in my head all the time because I could have another move, but Crystal Palace is my home.

"When I am here I feel more confident. I have lived in South London all my life and my family is here."

Juan Cuadrado

Meanwhile, Manchester United look set to miss out on Fiorentina's Colombia international Juan Cuadrado.

The 26-year-old winger, who lit up the 2014 World Cup finals, has reportedly told La Viola that he wants to join Chelsea before the winter transfer window closes next Monday.

Chelsea are keen to sign the South American, whose current contract includes a £26.8 million release clause, and the two clubs are currently in negotiations.

But whether Cuadrado arrives through the gates of Stamford Bridge could depend on Chelsea's attempts to offload out-of-favour wingers Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah.

Radamel Falcao

Meanwhile, super-agent Jorge Mendes has taken another sly dig at Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal by insisting Radamel Falcao - one of his star clients - would be a success at Old Trafford if Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.

Mendes - who also represents David de Gea - is at a loss to understand why Falcao is not playing week-in, week-out under Van Gaal and bemoaned the fact Ferguson is no longer the Red Devils' manager.

"I would have liked it if Falcao was with Sir Alex Ferguson," Mendes told La Sexta. "He is a player who needs to play 90 minutes and I don't understand (why he isn't)."

Falcao has played 14 matches for Manchester United, scoring three goals, since completing a season-long loan move from AS Monaco in September.
