21-year-old once capped England winger Wilfried Zaha will be sold by Manchester United this summer, and it seems they will be asking about £7M for the player they paid Crystal Palace a reported £10M up front plus £5M in potential performance-related add-ons.
Wilfried Zaha – Newcastle leading the chase?
So we suppose the Red Devils have limited that fee to just £10M, since Zaha has only played 4 times for Manchester United, and the transfer fee should be less than £7M.
The Mirror is reporting that Newcastle are one of three clubs after Zaha, and certainly Alan Pardew has always rated the Ivory Coast born player.
Crystal Palace are also interested in the England Intentional and Nottingham Forest would like to take the 21 year-old on loan for the season.
Zaha was a star when he was younger and at Crystal Palace, and in the last four full seasons there until last summer, he played 142 times with 18 goals, and he has 13 caps with one goal for the England U21 side.
We’re not convinced that Zaha is a target for Newcastle, but according to the Mirror we are not only interested in the winger, but we are currently leading the chase.
Well – it is a Sunday after all.
