The backpages report that Zaha is prepared to re-join Manchester United if they bid for him this summer.
The 26-year-old winger has informed Crystal Palace that he is determined to leave and will push for a move which is expected to lead to a prolonged transfer saga.
Palace are demanding a fee of £100 million before they would even consider a deal.
Interest has been expressed by Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund but they are not expected to go anywhere near that valuation which would represent a record for a British club.
Arsenal are in the market for a wide forward and are considering a move for Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser who would be considerably cheaper than Zaha.
United are also monitoring the situation over a player who was Sir Alex Ferguson’s last signing when he was bought in 2013 for £10 million but who left on loan the following January to Cardiff City and then returned to Palace, also initially on loan, after struggling for first-team opportunities under David Moyes and then Louis Van Gaal.
In an interview with Telegraph Sport in 2015, Zaha spoke of how he was left feeling “worthless” at United and of his frustration at not playing following his move.
Nevertheless there is a now a sense that Zaha has unfinished business at United, would back himself to be a success and would seriously consider a return to Old Trafford should a bid be made.
Zaha wants to join a bigger club and one with ambitions to play in European competition and ideally in the Champions League and believes he has done all he can at Palace and should be allowed to go.It is understood that Palace want £100 million although there is a sense that a fee of £70 million might be acceptable – which is denied by the club.
Palace believe that Zaha, whose contract runs until 2023 after he signed a new deal last year, is worth the higher amount given his status as one of the most impressive players in the Premier League and his importance to them.
