Man City look to beat Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal to sign former Man Utd flop

Manchester City may have been crowned Champions this weeked, but they are not planning on resting on their laurels, with reports saying that Pep Guardiola is already on planning on improving his squad.

City have already amassed an impressive 87 points this season with five games to go, meaning they are still on course to become the first team to break the 100 point barrier in Premier League history.

However, according to The Sun, City boss Pep Guardiola is ready to make a move for Crystal Palace forward Wilfred Zaha.

The Ivory Coast International has been a key player for the Eagles this season, and has been linked with a number of the league’s biggest clubs in recent months, including Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

The forward has of course already had experience of playing for a top six side – albeit not much – making just four appearances for David Moyes’ Manchester United side back in the 2013/14 season, before being loaned out to Cardiff City and ultimately re-sold back to his former club Crystal Palace.

Since failing to make an impression at Old Trafford, Zaha has made 140 appearances for the Eagles, scoring 23 goals.

The article claims that the 25-year-old would have no problem returning to Manchester should Guardiola’s side come calling for the pacey forward, who is valued by Palace at around £50 million.
