Man Utd boss Ferguson determined to outbid rivals for Palace dazzler Zaha

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is determined to land Crystal Palace superkid Wilfried Zaha. The People says Fergie has entered the chase for the exciting young forward - after a strong recommendation from his son Darren - and plans to win the race to land the new England cap.

United will offer "what it takes" to see off Tottenham and Arsenal in the January window which includes handing the 20-year-old better terms to come to Old Trafford.

Their interest only became serious last week after Zaha tore apart Fergie junior's Championship team Peterborough.

Son Darren has hailed the young Eagle as a special talent - and passed his view on to his dad.

A United source said: "Sir Alex now thinks Zaha has the skill and bottle to play for United - and he wants him badly."
