Zaha pictured near Selhurst Park – Could winger return to former club?

The Manchester United outcast was pictured with fans outside Selhurst Park before Crystal Palace’s match against Liverpool.


Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha was pictured outside Selhurst Park before Crystal Palace’s game against Liverpool on Monday.

The United forward, who has been on loan at already relegated Cardiff City since January, posed for pictures with fans outside a Palace supporters' pub ahead of the fixture.

The images supplement speculation that Zaha could return to the Eagles next season, after finding games hard to come by in his debut Premier League campaign.

Zaha was overlooked by former United boss David Moyes in the first half of the 2013-14 season after the 21-year-old moved to Old Trafford for £15m last summer.

Having helped Palace return to the Premier League via the play-offs last season, Zaha could now find himself back playing at Selhurst Park, as United reportedly prepare to take a massive loss on the youngster.

Zaha scored eight times in the Championship for Palace last season, but has failed to net once during 15 appearances at United and Cardiff this term.

The winger moved on loan to the Welsh capital in January in search of more playing time, but has mostly been used as a substitute by Bluebirds boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The United loanee is being tipped to return to Crystal Palace to reignite his promising potential that has seen him appear twice for England. However, it remains to be seen if Palace boss Tony Pulis would welcome Zaha into his squad.
