Wilfried Zaha has agreed three deals but want to prove himself at Manchester United rather than leave in the summer transfer window.

According to the Daily Mirror, the former Crystal Palace youngster has another chance to save his career at Old Trafford since the sacking of David Moyes and the appointment of Louis van Gaal.

Bad first impression

However, he did not start too well under the Dutchman after, the report claims, he was the only member of the Manchester United squad not to turn up to an ‘optional’ training session.

He was then made to do a double warm-down after the friendly with AS Roma, despite not playing.

It looked as though Zaha’s days at the Premier League club were up after he failed to make much of an impact under Moyes following his £15million move in the 2013 January transfer window – he has the privilege of being Sir Alex Ferguson’s last ever signing – and then being loaned out to Cardiff City this January.

On trial in the US

Van Gaal has told his squad that the pre-season trip to the US is their chance to secure their futures because he will be making any changes to the squad once they return to England ahead of their opening Premier League fixture.

Zaha was probably being sensible by agreeing £30,000-a-week deals with former club Crystal Palace, Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United ahead of Van Gaal wielding the axe to cut loose those he believes to be surplus to requirements.

Promotion inspiration

The England international was the key player for Crystal Palace in getting promoted to the Premier League two seasons ago.

His international debut and a string of sensational performances had many believing he would become one of the country’s leading stars – the Manchester United transfer only added to this.

There’s no doubting that Zaha has some incredible raw talent but he would not be the first promising youngster to fail when having his attitude tested.

A new leaf turned?

However, his recent comments regarding knowing he needs to work hard to salvage his Manchester United career are a step in the right direction.

"Louis van Gaal has let me know that he believes in me,” he said.

“I can’t tell what’s going to happen with the club in the future, but we have a great manager and I'm sure he will change things here."
