Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha prefers a move to North London giants Arsenal ahead of a possible return to Manchester United.

This is according to the publication from the stables of popular media channel ESPN.

It was revealed that Zaha wants to stay in London rather than move to Manchester this summer.

Manchester United had earlier signed Zaha from Crystal Palace in 2013 for a fee believed to be around £15m, but the player didn’t enjoy the best of experiences at the Theatre of Dreams.

Zaha joined Manchester United in the summer of 2013 though his transfer was confirmed in January.

The Crystal Palace attacker was the last signing of the managerial era of club legend Sir Alex Ferguson.

The former Aberdeen manager won 11 Premier League titles to secure his status as a Manchester United legend.

Sir Alex Ferguson also won two Champions League titles as the Manchester United manager.

Zaha returned to Crystal Palace from Manchester United in 2015 in a £6m deal.

Since his return to the club, Zaha has established himself as the key player at Selhurst Park but he believes this summer is the right time for him to leave the club for a Champions League playing team.

Arsenal have already had a £40m bid rejected for him by Crystal Palace.
