The protracted sale of Crystal Palace wonderkid Wilfried Zaha to Manchester United looks to be entering the final stages.

After weeks of rumour and counter-rumour, Zaha is expected to undertake a medical at Old Trafford in the next 48 hours with a view to a £15million move away from Selhurst Park.

The 20-year-old, who has five goals in 30 Palace appearances this season and who took his senior international bow in the England friendly against Sweden in November, has attracted huge media attention and speculation.  

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger expressed an interest in the wonder winger, before changing his mind, while Sir Alex Ferguson is said to have had talks with Zaha.

Rumours about the sale price have it ranging from £12million to £17million, with options of a loan back to the Eagles also doing the gossip rounds.
