Speculation is rife, this morning, that Sir Alex Ferguson`s wily old charms have resulted in the promising young Crystal Palace star, Wilfried Zaha, agreeing to become a United player.

It seems that United have beaten off the challenge of both Spurs and Arsenal to land the player with a fee of £12 million being mentioned to secure the services of the 20 year-old player.

Apparently, United will be paying £8 million up front with the other £4 million coming via add-ons.

The red-tops also go on to infer that United may have agreed to let the youngster remain at Selhurst Park for the remainder of the season and may also have promised Ian Holloway the loan of a couple of youngsters to assist Palace with their bid for promotion to the Premier League.
