Share

According to reports in BBC, Manchester United midfielder Wilfried Zaha is set to join fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace on a season long deal. The 21 year old joined the Red Devils from the Eagles on a £15m deal in January 2013 but has since then failed to muster a starting eleven spot for the Old Trafford side.

Zaha spent the latter part of last season on loan to Cardiff City but failed to steer the Welsh side away from relegation. Palace who have confirmed Neil Warnock as their new manager had earlier helped Zaha early in his career and it is believed that the player now again wants to feature under his former mentor.

ESPN quoted Warnock talking about Zaha’s tough start to his career at Old Trafford, “When you get the chance, you can’t turn down Manchester United but there are so many big players there and sometimes you get a bit lost.”

“He is still developing, Wilfried, and he has got so much talent. When you are a wide player, or a forward, you need to feel loved.”

  1. Don’t like him anyway, keeps the ball too much to himself, reminds me of Ronaldo when he first came. Maybe he will get better as he’s still in learning mode.

  2. Wilfried is a terrific youngster with loads of potential and is exactly the kind of kid that LvG seems to thrive on getting the most out of . Big mistake if he’s let go permanently. Could potentially become same kind of talent as Ryan.

  3. I hate having to lose chicholito as a MAN U suporter-why dont we keep him.This guy is a really good player.Lvg just needs to use him well-he scores stuning goals at the most crucial times for that matter.With the arival of a good winger of dimaria’s calibre,trust me,henandes is one of the best players we need in the 18 area

  4. Instead Of Buying B4 the transfer window close, they want to let go of good players
