Reports in England say that Manchester United are set to sign Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha for £15 million. The 20 year old striker has been in high demand and the Red Devils have been linked to Zaha for some time.

It was originally understood that United would wait for the summer transfer window before signing Zaha but now reports suggest that the striker will join as early as Saturday. It is also being reported that Zaha has agreed a five year deal with United but will most likely be loaned back to Palace for the remainder of the season. This is unconfirmed however, and an official deal has not yet been reached. 

It has also been confirmed by United that striker Federico Macheda has completed a loan move to German club Stuttgart for the rest of the season. Macheda has found it difficult to win a place in United's first team and the club hopes that the experience that Stuttgart can give him will help him in the future.
