Stoke City could look to pounce on Wilfried Zaha’s uncertain situation at Manchester United this summer, FootballDirectNews.com understands. Potters boss Mark Hughes, a former United player, is keen to add some new attacking talent to his squad next season, with on-loan winger Oussama Assaidi set to leave the club to return to Liverpool. Zaha has previously become rated as one of the best young talents in the country, prompting United to spend around 10million plus add-ons to sign him from Crystal Palace last January.
However, the England international failed to break into the squad under David Moyes this season, and is now on loan at Cardiff City for the second half of the campaign, though he has not made a great impression in Wales either.
Hughes still rates the player highly, according to a club insider, and may look to take the 21-year-old on loan next season, though it has also been suggested that United could be open to selling him. Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion are also monitoring his situation, while his old club Crystal Palace failed in their efforts to re-sign him last summer.
