United agreed a deal with Crystal Palace in January for the England international, but allowed Zaha to see out the season at Selhurst Park.

It has been suggested that he could be allowed to return to the Eagles again in 2013/14, allowing him to get useful top flight experience under his belt.

David Moyes has, however, assured the 20-year-old winger that he will get opportunities at Old Trafford and Zaha is happy to stick around and fight for his place.

After figuring in the opening game of United's pre-season tour, he said: "I've grafted to get here so Manchester United is where I want to stay.

"I've moved away from most of my family and friends but it's progress. Everyone understands that.

"I wanted to make the move here because it's what is best for my career."

Zaha is convinced he has what it takes to become the latest in a long line of exciting wingers to grace United's flanks.

He added: "I'm going to do my best to continue those traditions.

"The fans see the wingers we have now and the high standard they bring to the team. I want to meet those high standards as well."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
