According to reports, Manchester United has spoken with Wilfried Zaha, a forward for Crystal Palace.
THE LOWDOWN: FIRST OLD TRAFFORD STINT
With only four senior appearances for the team, the Ivory Coast international loaned out to Cardiff City and Palace before making a permanent move back to London.
Zaha, who is now 30 and whose contract with the Eagles is set to end in the summer, has made 450 appearances and contributed to 165 goals.
THE LATEST: UNITED CONTACT
London World reporter Rahman Osman, Tottenham are optimistic that they will be able to sign Zaha.
Nevertheless, in addition to AS Roma, United has also spoken with the player’s agents.
THE VERDICT: AVOID?
When he returned to the club, Zaha was lauded as “unplayable” by former premier league defender James Collins. He has been an important player for Palace and is presently the team’s leading scorer.
He is primarily a left winger, though, and under Erik ten Hag, Marcus Rashford has been a sensation there, tallying 14 league goals from that position.
It could be preferable to forego a deal for Zaha and focus on a star center-forward instead because United have a lot of outside attacking options in addition to Rashford but few players in the middle. Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen have both been mentioned.
Man Utd news: Urgent Harry Kane transfer advice amid Erik ten Hag’s Liverpool admission
Before Manchester United travels to their bitter rivals in the Premier League, Erik ten Hag has incensed Liverpool supporters, and interest in the upcoming summer transfer window is rising.
Manchester United travels to Anfield to face their former rivals Liverpool full of confidence after winning the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup and overcoming West Ham in the latter.
Given that they have made it to the FA Cup quarterfinals and the last 16 of the Europa League, the Red Devils still have a chance to win three more trophies this year. Erik ten Hag, though, is currently focused on beating Liverpool in the Premier League in order to maintain his lead in the race for the championship.
With summer transfer гᴜmог s are heating up, the Dutchman is hoping his players are greeted with hostility at Anfield. Here are the most recent news stories from the Old Trafford area.
Neville sends Kane instruction
There is no question in Gary Neville’s mind that Manchester United should recruit Harry Kane from Spurs.
The purchase of a center-forward is anticipated to be a primary priority for the Red Devils this summer, with superstars Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen of Napoli leading their wishlist. As the former still has just over a year left on his Spurs deal and will turn 30 in July, there isn’t much time left for him to take home his first career-defining prize.
Neville thinks Kane will end up at Old Trafford because Manchester City, who were once connected to the England captain, last summer bought Erling Haaland.
De Jong transfer boost
After losing out on a chance to catch up with his former Ajax player last year, Erik ten Hag is prepared to chase Frenkie de Jong once more this summer.
The Netherlands manager attempted to bring his countryman to Old Trafford from Barcelona but was unsuccessful. De Jong has previously stated that Barcelona is his ideal team, but the Catalans’ financial difficulties may have hurt his prospects of sticking put.
La Liga has informed Blaugrana executives that they must raise £178 million in order to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, which may necessitate sales at the conclusion of the season. This is wonderful news for Ten Hag and Manchester United, who have put De Jong on their shortlist of six players for the upcoming summer transfer season.
Ten Hag wants Һostile Anfield
As Manchester United travels to Anfield on Sunday, Erik ten Hag claims his team is looking forward to a Һostile greeting from Liverpool supporters.
One of the toughest rivalries in the nation is between the two most successful football teams in England, the North-West giants. Liverpool will be driven to upset Manchester United and throw them a blow in the Premier League title race, giving this weekend’s derby extra sting.
Yet Ten Hag is adamant that his players will perform better in an adverse environment. The Dutchman hopes that United’s opponents’ boos and jeers will motivate them to keep up with Arsenal and Manchester City.
