Manchester United will reportedly try to lure Wilfried Zaha to Old Trafford from Crystal Palace by allowing the Championship club to keep the winger until the summer.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to see off their rivals and clinch the signing of Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

The 20-year-old has hit the headlines in the last week after England manager Roy Hodgson called up the Championship player to the senior Three Lions team for tonight's friendly against Sweden.

While a host of Premier League outfits are thought to be keen on the youngster, it is understood that United are willing to strike a deal with Palace in January, which would result in Zaha remaining at Selhurst Park until the summer, according to Goal.com.

Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City are also all believed to be keeping tabs on Zaha.
