Manchester United and Crystal Palace holding talks

by admin on Вторник, Январь 22nd, 2013

Manchester United and Crystal Palace will hold talks during the next 24 hours. They work towards concluding a deal for England winger Wilfried Zaha.

Manchester United are understood to be willing to pay £12m for Zaha and will then loan him back to the Championship club for the rest of the season.

Both clubs have refused to comment on a proposed deal for the 20-year-old. But an agreement could be reached by the end of the week for a player who won his first England cap against Sweden in November.

Zaha has scored 15 goals in 124 appearances for the Eagles since his debut against Cardiff in March 2010. He was named the Football League Young Player of the Year last season and attracted the attention of a host of Premier League clubs.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had said he was «looking at Zaha» but today insisted a bid was never made.

«We were never in for Zaha,» he said. «I don’t know if he will go to Man United. If he goes to Man United, good luck to him.»

Palace are fourth in the Championship and losing Zaha could be a blow to their Premier League ambitions. Zaha has been with Crystal Palace since the age of 12. He was described as the biggest talent to emerge at the club since former England striker Ian Wright.
