Freedman worked with Zaha when in charge of Crystal Palace.
“Wilfried will play in the Premier League some day,” said Freedman to the Manchester Evening News. “Which club he goes to I don’t really know but whichever one he ends up at will have one hell of a player.
“I found him at the age of 14 and he had a hunger and desire to make the first team then.
“He has a ‘no fear’ attitude when he goes on the pitch. He is a very shy man off it.
“But he could walk into a dressing room of established Premier League players and easily hold his own.”
