There are nods of agreement here in the Football Transfer Tavern after one of our punters noted that according to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United could well be set to send Wilfried Zaha out on loan.
The winger, who was former manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s last signing, has made just one appearance for the club since completing his move from Crystal Palace.
Given he is now in danger of losing his spot in the England Under 21 squad, not to mention the fact that his progression has come to a startling halt, the player himself is willing to look for a temporary move elsewhere.
As our punters quip, rumours have been flying around as to why manager Moyes does not fancy the player, and despite the side struggling for form this season, Zaha has not been given a chance to help turn things around.
Before pouring a pint, our landlord takes a second to stop and note that one thing Zaha can take comfort from is the fact that he is highly sought after.
Not only are former club Palace predictably interested in taking him for the second half of the season, but Everton, West Ham and Sunderland are all queuing up to snap him up as well.
Moyes himself pointed to the fact that there is such competition for places amongst the wide positions at the club and noted:
“I’ve said if I couldn’t get Wilf a game, I would look at it in January. But I really thought when he came in he needed to be here for six months to see how we work.
“It’s not because Wilf has not done enough, it’s because we have got big, big competition.”
