Manchester United were humiliated in their own backyard by Crystal Palace yesterday and it was evident that going forward, the Red Devils lack quality.
Daniel James was preferred ahead of Greenwood but the Welshman had a flop outing and could not trouble the Eagles’ defense at all.
Man United have to sign a quality attacker before the closure of the summer transfer window or Solskjaer may suffer more. If Sancho is too expensive then an alternative must be lured and in my view, the Red Devils should move to bring back Wilfried Zaha.
The Ivorian international tormented our back-line and scored two goals to help Palace earn all three points at Old Trafford.
He was never given a fair chance at Man Utd and only played 4 senior games for the club. Since leaving us, he has consistently done well for the London based side. He was even the man of the match in the opening PL contest vs Southampton.
The versatile star can effectively play on either flank and even as an out and out center forward if needed. He is fast, a quality dribbler and can strike the ball with both feet.
Zaha is linked with a move away from Selhurst Park and Roy Hodgson is desperate to keep him. The English manager even opted to hand him the captain’s armband vs Man United and the winger led his team brilliantly.
As per reports (The Evening Standard), Palace will demand at least £50million from the sale of the 27-year-old attacker and I think that Man United have to splash the cash to secure his signing this summer.
Have your say – Would you welcome Wilfried Zaha back?
