Man United loanee’s future set to be resolved

WIlfried Zaha’s long-term future could be resolved by the time tonight’s transfer deadline has passed, with the winger thought to be on the verge of joining Crystal Palace from Manchester United on a permanent basis, according to the Daily Star.

The England international only joined the Red Devils in a £15m deal in 2013, but after an initial loan spell back with the Eagles he struggled to make an impact at the start of last season.

David Moyes, then Old Trafford manager, sent him away to Cardiff for the latter half of the campaign, before now gaffer Louis van Gaal deemed him surplus to requirements and shipped him back to Selhurst Park.

Although still 22, Zaha is unlikely to have much of a future at United given their wealth of attacking talent, which has prompted talk of a permanent switch back to Palace.

The south London club are keen to pay around £6m for the Ivory Coast-born player, but LVG’s side are after closer to £10m.

However, the issue is complicated by the fact United still owe Palace around £4m from their initial deal for the starlet.
