Wilfried Zaha's United future to be decided by Van Gaal

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal will have to decide the future of starlet-turned-flop Wilfried Zaha as one of his first ports of call once he assumes daily duties at Old Trafford, according to the Daily Star.

The English youngster was transferred from Crystal Palace only last summer, but endured a horrendous season under David Moyes which saw him farmed out on loan to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s relegated Cardiff City. Speculation has since suggested that his future with the former Premier League champions is very much up in the air - a notion which wasn’t helped by Moyes’ sacking prior to the end of the season.

However it’s thought that Van Gaal will now assume responsibility for whether or not Zaha stays or goes this summer, but will most likely have one thing on his mind above all others - the interest coming from Arsenal. The Gunners are said to be mulling over the possibility of rescuing the 21-year-old from his Manchester nightmare, and will wait for Van Gaal to come to his decision before either moving for the player or ending their interest.

Under Moyes Zaha was practically confirmed to depart Old Trafford this summer, but it’s thought that his successor may have different ideas due to his love for out and out wide men.
