Zaha has made only four appearances for United, and gone on loan spells to Cardiff and Palace.

Well that went well. Quite. Zaha looked overpriced when United signed him and a move would now seem best for all concerned.

Italy? Exactly. Not sure why they’d be first to know, but the news will doubtless be welcomed by United fans who would love to see the Spanish stopper stay in front of the Stretford End.

Getting a bit desperate? Just a bit. Sissoko is a fine midfielder and needs to focus on playing well for Newcastle, especially now John Carver has been confirmed as boss until the end of the season.
