Wilfried Zaha

Manchester United are still interested in signing Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha according to journalist Ian McGarry who told Reach plc’s Transfer Window Podcast.

According to him, the Red Devils have an interest in their former player Zaha who didn’t have the best of careers at Old Trafford.

He joined Manchester United from Crystal Palace as a young and raw winger in the summer of 2013 months after his transfer had been finalized.

His transfer was the last one conducted under the managerial reign of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Crystal Palace and Manchester United agreed a £15m deal for him in January 2013 but the England-born Ivorian international player didn’t live up to the hype that came with his transfer to Old Trafford.

He was then sent on loan to current Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Cardiff City before the Ivorian player secured another loan deal to boyhood club Crystal Palace.

Zaha impressed during that loan spell at Palace and that prompted the Eagles to re-sign him permanently.

He had been their main man at Crystal Palace since returning to the South London club permanently in 2015.

Wilfried Zaha is presently rated at £90m by Crystal Palace and Manchester United won’t have any problems with that transfer fee as long as they have reached the decision to sign him.

The likes of Arsenal and Everton had issues with his valuation as they both failed to pursue Zaha away from Crystal Palace mainly due to the high transfer fee slapped on him by Eagles chairman Steve Parish.
