Wilfried Zaha has described his first days as a Manchester United player as a “dream come true”.

The 20-year-old began pre-season training with his new team-mates earlier this week under new Red Devils manager David Moyes, who has taken the Old Trafford reins from Sir Alex Ferguson.

And Zaha, who signed for United back in January but was immediately loaned back to Crystal Palace for the rest of the 2012-13 season, says he has been left “speechless” by his first training sessions at Carrington.

“It was a bit nerve-wracking at first, coming in and seeing all these players that I’ve watched over the years. But everyone seems all right so I’m settling in okay,” Zaha told MUTV.

“I’m speechless really, I just never thought I’d have the chance to play with the likes of [Wayne] Rooney and to actually be sitting next to [Ryan] Giggs in the changing room. It’s just a dream really.”
