How Wilfried Zaha could return to Manchester United in cut-price deal

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha could rejoin Manchester United for a knock-down fee this summer.

Zaha had a disappointing spell at Old Trafford under David Moyes in 2013/14, during which time he made just four first-team appearances and contributed no goals or assists.

The Ivory Coast international was subsequently sent on loan to Cardiff City, where he worked under new United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer even compared Zaha’s quick feet to Cristiano Ronaldo during the time they shared together in south Wales, and now The Sun claim the pair could be reunited this summer in Manchester.

According to them, the Red Devils will be due to a 25% cut of any future transfer fee Palace receive for Zaha, meaning they’d be able to get him much cheaper than any other interested parties.

The 26-year-old has revived his career since returning to Selhurst Park in a deal worth just £6m in the summer of 2015.

His performances over the past couple of seasons have seen him linked with a host of top clubs and he is now said to be valued at approximately £70m.

United will reportedly be in the market for a new wide-man at the end of the season and have been heavily linked with Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.

But Zaha wouldn’t be a bad fall-back option at all.
