Man City eyeing international ace signed by Fergie for Guardiola overhaul

‘But we’ll sign players Pep wants over the summer’, is often a line this bartender hears in the Transfer Tavern when collecting glasses from the Manchester City booth, and The Sun claim that Wilfried Zaha is one that the Spaniard is after.

Pep Guardiola spent heavily last year through his first transfer window last year, but the Citizens are, instead of battling for the title, involved in a scrap for a top four finish with seven games left to play.

And The Sun claim that the ex-Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss is ready to ‘shake-up’ his squad with Zaha having played himself onto Man City’s radar.

The Ivory Coast international is currently enjoying, arguably, the best form of his career with Palace right now, with his goal and assist in the recent win over Chelsea taking his tallies to six and seven respectively.

Zaha was famously signed by Manchester United during the latter months of Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign in January 2013, but upon his arrival he worked under David Moyes for six months before being shipped out on loan to Cardiff and then back to Palace the following season.

Wilfried Zaha should stay at Crystal Palace – agree?
