Reports: Pep Guardiola Wants Man Utd Flop At Manchester City
Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday, but manager Pep Guardiola is believed to want to improve his side further by signing a former Manchester United flop.
According to the Daily Mail, the Citizens are plotting a move for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, who could help the side fill their homegrown quota.
The 25-year-old Ivory Coast international came through the Eagles' ranks to make his senior debut in 2010, and counts as a homegrown player despite being born in Africa.
A number of top Premier League sides have shown interest in Zaha following his fantastic form for Palace this season.
The winger has popped up with important contributions at vital moments in this campaign, and many feel he will be even better at a bigger club.
Zaha's big break was supposed to come with his move to United in 2013, but after a difficult start to life with the Red Devils, he was loaned out to Cardiff City in January 2014, and went back to Palace on loan a year later.
The attacker made just four senior appearances for United before his move back the Eagles was made permanent in 2015.
Since switching international allegiances from England to Ivory Coast, Zaha has become an important player for his country, gaining experience that has perhaps helped him at club level.
