Manchester United boss Fergie has now made an official move for the Eagles kid, but Palace supremo Steve Parish is refusing to talk to the Old Trafford giants.
And Ferguson will be furious to discover that Parish will meet Tottenham supremo Levy tomorrow to thrash out Zaha's future.
United are threatening to go to the Premier League over the transfer - claiming Levy's 'fingerprints' were all over the move that saw the defender join Spurs at the second attempt.
Now the prize is Zaha as the pair go head to head again. Ferguson is desperate to land him but Spurs are willing to sign him and leave him at Palace for the rest of the season, possibly backed up by sending a loan player or two to Selhurst Park.
