The Daily Mail are reporting this evening that Manchester United are set to sign Crystal Palace’s 20-year-old winger Wilfried Zaha tomorrow for a deal to be valued at £15million.
The deal is set to see Zaha loaned back to Palace until the end of the season.
Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t travel with the rest of the squad to Qatar and reportedly met with Wilfried Zaha on Sunday night after the Tottenham game to sort personal details.
Arsenae Wenger and Arsenal made a bid for the Zaha last week but at a press conference today, he said:
“We were never in for Zaha. I don’t know if he will go to Man United. If he goes to Man United, good luck to him.”
Arsene more than likely saving face as the deal has almost been done with Manchester United, all betting networks have stopped taking bets.
Neither club have commented on the reports that the transfer is close but expect more official news to break on Wednesday morning.
Zaha has come through the youth system at Crystal Palace after joining the club at the age of 12 and his progress has attracted interest from a number of clubs.
