Wilfried Zaha

Three-time European champions Manchester United are reportedly keen on re-signing one of their former players according to The Sun.

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is a key player for the Eagles but he’s wanted back at Old Trafford despite his highly unsuccessful spell at the club.

According to the publication from the stables of The Sun, Manchester United want to re-sign Wilfried Zaha in a deal that could be as high as £70m.

The Ivorian international is said to be one of their priority transfers next summer.

Wilfried Zaha was the last signing of the Sir Alex Ferguson era at Manchester United but he didn’t justify his £15m price tag at the club before being farmed out on loan to Welsh team Cardiff City.

He joined Crystal Palace on loan afterwards before securing a permanent return to the London club whom he left for Manchester United in 2013.

Since his return to Selhurst Park, he has scored 32 goals in 175 Premier League games.

Wilfried Zaha was the subject of bids from the likes of Everton and Arsenal in the summer after the player indicated his willingness to leave the club but they were unable to match the £80m asking price from Crystal Palace.
