Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has held face-to-face talks with Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha. The Mirror says United have agreed a staggering £15 million deal to sign wonder kid Zaha from Crystal Palace.

Boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been backed by his money men in his bid to land the England starlet and Palace have accepted a fee that guarantees them £10 million.

The extra £5 million will come in appearances and achievements and the whole total is more than the Eagles could refuse for their young attacker.

Zaha was given permission to discuss the move with his potential new boss and met him in a top London hotel on Sunday night.

The exciting young forward - an Arsenal fan - is happy to go to Old Trafford and the last detail will be whether he is returned to Palace on loan for the rest of the season.
