Wilfried Zaha is considered one of England's main future players by many pundits, coaches and certainly Manchester United.
United are famous for allowing young players out on loan to other Premier League clubs, whereas clubs like Chelsea and Man City tend to let their youngsters develop away from the Premier League.
Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck and Jonny Evans are recent examples of United's system, whereas Gael Kakuta, Vladimir Weiss and John Guidetti are examples of City and Chelsea's.
Now, whatever people say, United's three are far better known and are far more likely to succeed, partly because of the clubs the players are at, but also because Cleverley, Welbeck and Evans are all Premier League proven.
So when BBC Sport reported that United had been urged to send Zaha out on loan, by the very scout who first recommended him to them, I only thought of one club where he might go; Crystal Palace.
Of course he could work at any other club. But if he wants to prove himself, somewhere where he's used to, where the fans already love him and where the club knows his game and where he knows the club's game could be season changing for Palace, and could be career changing for Zaha.
Should he go on loan and keep them up, or help with it, not only will he be seen as a Palace legend, but he will have proven himself in the league.
If not then we all know he has enough to be a Premier League player and we all know it's a team game and he cannot be blamed for their relegation.
Many have compared Zaha to Victor Moses, another former Palace player. He opted for Wigan rather than the other sides he was linked with, namely Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City, Arsenal and Barcelona, before moving to Chelsea and then Liverpool, where he playing fairly regular Premier League football.
Regular football is what Zaha's United founder Dave Webb thinks Zaha needs; "He would benefit from playing more competitive football and a loan move would help with his development," Webb told BBC Sport. However "He won't let it affect him too much," added Webb talking about the lack of competitive football Wilfried Zaha has played.
Zaha has also been linked to Newcastle which would be a better move should it work, although from Zaha's point of view Palace may be a more suited move.
Personally I believe United would benefit from sending Zaha out on loan, either to Palace or sending Zaha on loan to a club along with new right back Guillermo Varela and maybe Adnan Januzaj also.
They might even benefit from sending the trio to the same club, it's always a good idea to send youngsters together to the same club so they get working with each other. However another half-season loan would do Palace, United and Zaha some good.
