Arsenal summer target drops Man Utd transfer hint – Reports

Arsenal News HQ brings you the latest Arsenal news, match analysis, transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from trusted media outlets around the World.

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has indicated he could be open to returning to Manchester United.

Zaha was Sir Alex Ferguson’s final signing at United as he joined from Palace for £10 million in the summer of 2013.

But the 26-year-old was unable to impress David Moyes and made just four first-team appearances during his time at Old Trafford before being loaned out to Cardiff City.

Zaha returned to United but Louis van Gaal, who had replaced Moyes as manager, allowed Zaha to return to Palace on loan before the deal was made permanent.

The Ivory Coast international is now ready to leave Palace once again and has already admitted he is keen to play for a club in the Champions League.

Arsenal been linked with a move but are unable to meet Palace’s £80 million asking price after failing to secure a place in next seasons’ Champions League.

Reports have also claimed that United are considering a move, with Zaha open to returning to Old Trafford despite the club only being in the Europa League next term.

And in an interview with the Evening Standard, Zaha did not rule out the possibility when discussing a potential move back to United and revealed that he receives messages from supporters asking if he will return.

‘I’m getting DMs [direct messages on Twitter]:

‘Would you come back to Man United?’’ said Zaha. ‘Oh, really? I was in a bad place then. But I’m good now.’
