Wilfried Zaha is set to move to Manchester United from Crystal Palace after being offered a £12million package, according to The Times.
Zaha to Manchester United?
Zaha has been high on the list of many Premier League league clubs for some time after a string of impressive performances for Crystal Palace over the last 18-months. Arsene Wenger was seen as in pole position to land Zaha after reportedly making an £8million bid last week, but Sir Alex Ferguson has stumped that bid offering a £12million package deal.
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish, had placed a £20million valuation on Wifred Zaha before the January transfer window, a valuation that is more than likely a bit steep for a Championship player, but both Steve Parish and Sir Alex Ferguson are believed to have had talks to come to this agreement, even after the United boss said there would be no incoming business this transfer window.
On option that both clubs are looking to pen in the deal is to have Zaha as a Manchester United but to loan him back to Crystal Palace until the end of the season so that Ian Holloway’s side can push for promotion to the Premier League.
United did a similar, buy to loan back deal with Chris Smalling back in 2012 after allowing the defender to stay with Fulham until the end of that season
