And so it came to pass, sometime yesterday afternoon, that Wilfried Zaha finally became a United player.

With the proposed move being the topic of discussion all week, twenty-year old Zaha finally completed the formalities associated with such a transfer, signing a five and a half year deal, with a reported fee of £15 going to Selhurst Park.

As a condition of his move, Zaha will return to play for Crystal Palace for the remainder of this season and the young winger, tipped for stardom, had this to say to the media, following the completion of his move,

“I am delighted to be joining United. However, my focus for the next five months will be solely at Palace.”

“I will always love the club and I want to help them to the Premier League.”


All that remains to be seen is if Zaha can live up to all the hype surrounding him.
