Wilfried Zaha had a good game for Cardiff City on Saturday against Newcastle, and the on-loan striker from Manchester United has had a terrible first full season at the Red Devils, and could be sold in the summer.
Wilfried Zaha – in action for Manchester United last year
So it’s not too surprising that Newcastle, who were interested in the player when he was playing so well at Crystal Palace, may go after the winger this summer, with the price said to be around £7M.
And Newcastle lack flair players and we need to bring some creative players in this summer, and the ones we do have – like Ben Arfa for example – are not even in the squad these days.
The Chronicle is reporting that Alan Pardew, who has always been keen on the winger, is keen on bringing him in this summer, although he has had a hard job winning a starting position at Cardiff, who are the bottom of the league side and will be relegated.
It will be a risk to sign Wilfred, but there’s no doubt he has great ability and skill, but the question is whether Newcastle get the best out of this creative player?
It’s something we could only do in short spells with Hatem Ben Arfa, who now looks set to leave Newcastle in the summer, and that’s certainly true if Alan Pardew stays on as manager.
Zaha has played 4 times for Manchester United this season, and while art Cardiff on loan he has 11 appearances, mostly as a substitute, and while he was at Palace he played 143 times with 18 goals in his last three seasons there.
We still hope Newcastle keep Ben Arfa, because even if we do sign Zaha, he’s completely unproven in the Premier League.
