United star set to demand move away
The player has also considered handing in a transfer request if he is not allowed to leave the club this month, the newspaper reports.
Zaha was linked with a loan move to fellow Premier League outfit Cardiff City, according to the newspaper, but the deal fell through due to the Welsh club opting to change managers, and United didn’t want the situation affecting the player.
The former Crystal Palace star has reportedly hit an all-time low and his relationship with staff and team-mates have caused the 21-year-old to consider a move to a club where he will be given regular first team football.
Zaha also insists that United changed their mind at the last minute over the proposed move to Cardiff and the managerial situation was used as an excuse, the newspaper also claims.
The Red Devils have since informed Cardiff – who are now managed by former United star Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – that the player is no longer available for a loan move due to injuries sustained by Ashley Young and Nani, according to the paper, although the latter has since returned.
Manager David Moyes claims that he will assess the situation after Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup semi-final second leg at home to Sunderland, where United will need to overturn a 2-1 deficit if they are to reach the final at Wembley.
The player also refused to travel with the squad in Sunday’s trip to Stamford Bridge where the team were beaten 3-1, according to the newspaper, after Zaha claimed that he would rather stay behind and train as opposed to watching the contest as a spectator.
Zaha joined United in the 2013 January transfer window, but was subsequently loaned back to Palace for the rest of the season, and he helped is former employers secure promotion to the Premier League.
This season however he has rarely featured in the first team due to the outstanding form of youngster Adnan Januzaj, and currently he is sixth-choice winger behind Januzaj, Antonio Valencia, Nani, Young and Danny Welbeck.
He was signed for £15million and earns around £30,000 a week but has yet to start a Premier League game for United this season, causing a mounting sense of frustration.
In fact, the England international has admitted to being on the end of several outbursts from manager Moyes, the report adds.
