£20m wonder kid on Manchester United's radar

Manchester United are looking to land Crystal Palace wonder kid Wilfried Zaha in the January transfer window according to reports from The Daily Mirror.

Sir Alex Ferguson has taken a keen interest in the player, who he thinks can improve the squad considerably after getting recommendations from his son Darren.

The 20-year-old has been chased by top clubs in England and Europe in recent months . English giants Arsenal have been sending scouts to check his progress on a frequent basis while Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is also interested in getting his signature.

Palace are unwilling to sell, as they look for promotion to the top tier of English football, and have slapped a price tag of £20m for the youngster.

Zaha will be a great addition for Manchester United and the deal makes a lot of sense. Probably hee will not get a better club to further his career than at Old Trafford. Here, at United, the club provides a perfect platform for the young, pacey wingers and under the watchful eye of Sir Alex Ferguson Zaha’s talent will be nurtured properly.

Also, his deal bodes well with the Red Devil’s transfer policies. United camp think they can get their man by paying half the fees quoted while can sell him at a higher price if they want to in future.
