Manchester United look set to sign Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace are known for grooming young and talented players. Since early 2012 many football fans across England have been raving about the sensational performances of their player Wilfried Zaha. After years of speculation he looks set to finally agree terms with a Premier League club in Manchester United.

It's being reported that the two clubs are close to agreeing a 12m fee that will see Zaha stay with Palace until the seasons end. The young star has been tipped to grace an elite English club since his early days at Palace and Manchester United seem to be the perfect destination for the young talented star.

With rumours of Nani's departure sticking around it looks likely that Zaha may be his replacement in the summer. With Sir Alex Ferguson being known for developing young stars it looks like Old Trafford is the place for Zaha to have his talents groomed over the coming years. Zaha can play as both a winger and a striker and United see him as a great addition to their current squad. Although it's believed Zaha can have an impact on his arrival this appears to be a signing that will benefit the clubs future past Sir Alex Ferguson's stay as manager.

With talks underway it appears a deal will be completed in the near future, most likely before next weeks transfer deadline. Several Premier League clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Man City have monitored the star but it seems like United have too much pulling-power for the other clubs to compete in this deal.

The Palace ace was capped by England against Sweden in November and many believe that wasn't a one off appearance. Although Zaha is not known for his goal-scoring ability his all-round play has fans leaving the ground astonished at what they've witnessed. It's been clear for a long while that although Zaha may not be ready for the Premier League he is certainly far too good to be a Championship player for much longer.

With Palace hoping to get promoted to the Premier League this season they will be demanding Zaha stays for the seasons duration and they will probably be granted this aspect if any deal is concluded. If and when Zaha leaves it is surely a matter of "who's next" as the club have developed Premier League stars Nathaniel Clyne and Victor Moses in recent times. With such a great track record with their youth system Palace will be hoping the next star is ready to be called upon.
