Wilfried Zaha is as certain to be plying his trade at Manchester United this February as Ryan Giggs is if reports are to be believed. The bookies have United 2/7 favourites to land the Crystal Palace winger as it seems the youngster is heading to Old Trafford.
Well forgive me for erring on the side of caution, but there’s still the possibility that Zaha could actually end up at the Emirates in this transfer window.
Zaha is a known Arsenal fan, in fact when the Gunners were beaten by Olympiakos back in December, the winger tweeted: ‘I’m an Arsenal supporter but they stress me out’
A sentiment no doubt echoed by more than a few Gooners. With the asking price for Zaha believed to be around the £12 million mark there’s no reason why Arsene Wenger couldn’t match the figure United offer. If Zaha follows his heart rather than his head then he could well surprise everyone and choose Arsenal over United, after all no one really expected Aaron Ramsey to end up at the Emirates did they?
With Wenger under increasing pressure to show fans he’s not given up on challenging for major honours, snatching the most-talked about player in England from under United’s noses, may just quieten his detractors- at least until the Summer.
