Wil’ he stay or will he go?
Manchester United chief executive David Gill has confirmed what a techy Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway hinted at yesterday about Wilfried Zaha.
United’s chief bean counter said the club were interested in signing the Crystal Palace forward but refused to say whether the England international would be loaned back to Palace for the rest of the season. The Eagles are adamant though that no deal will be done until the summer.
Gill told reporters:
That is all I will say at the moment. I’ve been in football long enough to say that is not done until it’s done. He’s one of the players we are looking at, but it is far from done.
Wayne Rooney returned from injury last night in the FA Cup to send United through to a fourth-round clash with Fulham after his goal saw off West Ham United last night – but the England international also missed a penalty.
And one player that won’t be making way for Zaha it seems is 39-year-old Ryan Giggs who’s reportedly close to signing another one-year contract at United.
