For the most part, Manchester United’s recruitment in the transfer market has been sub-par in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did some good business just a few months ago, though there is much work ahead to turn this squad back into one capable of winning major trophies.
Anyway late last night, The Sun decided to run a rather interesting transfer story. Apparently, United are ‘lining up a summer move’ to bring 27-year-old Wilfried Zaha back to Old Trafford…
The report adds that the Reds are leading the race to snap up the forward in a deal worth £70million+.
Birthday boy Zaha struggled mightily during his first spell at United, however, United feel he’s now older and wiser, while the Reds are ready to pay Crystal Palace’s demands for the Ivory Coast international.
The Reds are in dire need of a creative spark and there’s no doubt that Zaha could somewhat fill that void, however, I have a serious problem with United moving back in for him.
This was a player who greatly struggled at United, then left for a minimal fee. Does it really send the right message to go back and buy that man for massive money? For me, it’s simply not worth the risk and honestly, I’m not sure he’s good enough…
