Manchester United can sign Wilfried Zaha for £70m this summer – report

Wilfried Zaha would be open to rejoining Manchester United this summer should the club make an offer, according to the Telegraph.

Sir Alex Ferguson made Zaha his last ever signing at Old Trafford in January 2013, with the winger returning to Crystal Palace for the remainder of the season. The Scot’s unexpected retirement in May of that year meant Zaha ended up playing under David Moyes, who acted as if the winger basically didn’t exist, handing him just four appearances.

Zaha ended up returning to Palace and has since further cemented himself as the club’s talismanic force in attack, terrorising teams with his direct, ferocious running from the left-hand side.

And according to the Telegraph‘s Jason Burt, Zaha feels there is a sense of unfinished business with United, where he was made to feel ‘worthless’, and would be open to an Old Trafford return this summer should the club show interest in signing him. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did sign Zaha on loan as Cardiff City manager in 2014 and wants to add another wide forward to his squad.

Zaha is reportedly determined to secure a move away from Selhurst Park this summer. Palace have placed a £100m valuation on his head, although a fee of £70m could prove to be acceptable.
