Man Utd have advantage on Arsenal in Zaha bid battle

Manchester United are edging ahead of Arsenal in the battle for Crystal Palace whizkid Wilfried Zaha.

The Daily Mail says United could win the chase for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, by allowing the youngster to go back to South London on loan.

The clubs enjoy a good relationship, and despite United pulling the plug on a deal for young Palace defender Nathaniel Clyne earlier in the year, there could be an agreement in sight if the Old Trafford club can come up with the £15million-plus asking price.

As an Arsenal fan, Zaha is thought to favour a move to the Emirates if possible but Arséne Wenger's public courting of the player has riled Eagles boss Ian Holloway and the club's hierarchy.
