Manchester United have agreed a deal to sell Wilfried Zaha to Crystal Palace. Manchester United fans are happy with this bit of business, despite selling him for significantly less than they bought him for!
Wilfried Zaha was an in-demand English teenager a couple of years ago. Arsenal allegedly made a £10million bid for him and Manchester United eventually signed him for £15million. Since then, he reportedly fell out with David Moyes, never fell in with Louis van Gaal and has now completed a £3million back to Crystal Palace! Some story.
Zaha has spent spells on loan at Cardiff and Crystal Palace since his move to Old Trafford. In the end, he was never really given a good run in the Manchester United team, but it appears his quality and attitude in training did not merit more regular involvement in the Manchester United set up.
Here’s how the Manchester United fans are reacting to the news on Twitter. They seem upset with only getting £3million for him, but happy that he’s gone.
I don't blame zaha for re joining palace at all just deep he didn't get a chance at man utd

Zaha and Anderson off. Good riddance. Just don't turn into Cristiano and Ronaldinho now.

People seem to think we made a huge lost on Zaha financially. Not really, 6m+ loan fees made it about 8m/9m and we paid 12m for him.

What was the point of Zaha going to United just to go back to Crystal Palace? Hype that's why

Zaha never seemed to have the right attitude to succeed at United, glad more dead weight is gone
