Man Utd are in 'pole-position' to re-sign Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace's Wilfred Zaha

Manchester United ground out a 2-1 win against Watford in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first game as permanent manager yesterday.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial scored the goals for the Red Devils, with Abdoulaye Doucoure's brilliant late goal simply not enough for the visitors.

On the balance of play, the Hornets deserved at least a point from the game.

However, Solskjaer's side have become very good at picking up wins when they're not at their best.

It's a trait that is proving profitable, but one that the Norwegian manager will wish to eradicate if he is to challenge for major honours at Old Trafford.

As such, the summer transfer window could prove pivotal to his reign.

United have some serious funds to invest into the squad, with a new winger appearing to be high up on the list of priorities.

Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho has been heavily linked with the Red Devils, but a familiar face is now rearing it's head in the form of Wilfred Zaha.

The Ivorian signed for the club back in 2013, but failed to break into the first-team under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.

Zaha has become one of the Premier League's most feared attackers back at Crystal Palace and United are now in 'pole-position' to land him in the summer for a reduced fee.

According to The Sun, United will get 25% of the profits from Zaha's sale due to clause in his contract with Palace.

That means they can sign him on the cheap.

Zaha previously played under Solskjaer at Cardiff and it's thought the United boss would like a reunion.

The Ivorian is capable on both wings and can also deputise as a central striker if needed.

He'd be some signing if Solskjaer and the board can pull it off.
