Man Utd's Wilfried Zaha clause means they could receive £15m from transfer

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is said to be seriously considering a move to Manchester United this summer despite experiencing a hard stint with the Red Devils previously. He has pleaded with Palace not to stand in his way believing he has done all he can.

The in-demand winger has been strongly linked with a return to Manchester United just over four years after leaving and reports suggest he is open to the move.

Zaha, who scored 10 goals in an impressive 2018-19 Premier League campaign, is keen to test himself at the highest level of club football and start regularly challenging for trophies.

Despite failing to make any impact at the Theatre of Dreams between 2013 and 2015, Zaha believes he is now ready for the challenge. And not ambitious just to play for a top club, but to win things at club level and with the Ivory Coast.

The Red Devils are now on their lowest ebb since the inception of the Premier League, having finished an astounding 32 points behind champions Manchester City. "And I'll do the rest", he said.

"I think he's a £60m player - I think he's every bit as good as Mahrez", he added.

"I've answered that question [whether Palace can retain their star players] so many times", he told a press conference (via Goal).

Borussia Dortmund made inquiries into Zaha during the January transfer window, having identified him as a potential replacement for Christian Pulisic.

It has been claimed the Ivory Coast global feels he has unfinished business at the club, with his transfer to United in 2013 seemingly proving to be the wrong move for him at the time.

Zaha held informal talks this week with the Palace chairman Steve Parish, who enjoys a strong relationship with the youth-team graduate, in the wake of his most productive Premier League campaign and while he fell short of submitting a transfer request, reiterated his ambition to experience life involving Europe's elite club competition. Despite playing mostly on the left flank, he also ranked fourth for touches in the opposition box - above Sergio Aguero and behind only Hazard, Raheem Sterling and Mohamed Salah.
