Manchester United are chasing Wilfried Zaha but will wait until the summer before attempting to sign the Crystal Palace star, Red Devils chief executive David Gill has confirmed.

The 20-year-old is one of the most sought-after players in the Championship after impressing for Ian Holloway’s side this season.

Zaha, who made his first senior England appearance in a 4-2 loss to Sweden in November, has scored five goals in 26 appearances for the Londoners.

His performances have unsurprisingly attracted interest from the Premier League, with Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and United all linked with the winger.

Over the weekend, it was reported United that were on the verge of signing Zaha, but Gill has hinted that any possible deal is not likely to be completed until the end of the season.

“He’s one of the players we’re looking at. There’s a long way to go…but that would be one for the summer,” said Gill.

Holloway has already expressed his desire to keep Zaha until the end of the campaign, whether that be as a Palace player or on loan from a top-flight club, with his side fourth in the Championship.
