EPL: Wilfried Zaha nearing £12m switch to Manchester United

Man United close in on Wilfried Zaha
Manchester, Jan 10: Manchester United are confident of signing Crystal Palace youngster Wilfried Zaha for £12 million during the ongoing January transfer window.

Zaha, 20, has been targetted by top Premier League clubs but United are on pole position despite offering lesser than Palace's valuation of the player.

Palace boss Ian Holloway wasn't ready to listen to offers less than £20 million but know clubs will not spend so much for a young winger.

United are currently in talks with Palace and are willing to send Zaha back on loan for the rest of the season along with other players to boost their promotion chances.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is not interested, Arsenal have offered Theo Walcott a new contract, Liverpool are close to signing Tom Ince while Tottenham only made an initial offer of £10m.

Zaha's transfer to Old Trafford could see Portuguese winger Nani heading out of Manchester Untied. The 26-year-old has been linked with Arsenal and Chelsea but none have made any concrete offer.

Meanwhile, Zaha already has five goals in 25 appearances in the Championship and also made his England debut as a substitute in England's 4-2 friendly defeat by Sweden.
