Manchester United risk being pipped by Arsenal for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

The Daily Star Sunday says Sir Alex Ferguson insists he will not be buying any players in this month's transfer window.

But Arsenal have now entered the running with United for Crystal Palace winger Zaha which could see the fee rise to £12million.

United, who have been in pole position to sign the Eagles starlet from the start, hoped to clinch the transfer in the summer.

But a deal now looks like being done this month - with either United or Arsenal.
