Man Utd Transfer News: Mexican Winger Arrives – Zaha Set For Medical

By on January 24, 2013


With the January transfer window now open for business we’ll be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer gossip. Today, news on Manchester United offering a trial to a Mexican winger and the latest on the Zaha deal.

Damm offered trial

Manchester United have offered a trial to young Mexican winger Jurgen Damm, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims the 20-year-old, who currently plays for Estudiantes Tecos, was being lined-up for a move to Spanish outfit Real Oviedo this week but the father of United striker Javier Hernandez – Eduardo, who also acts as the players agent – recommended the winger to boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Mirror suggest Damm has now arrived in Manchester to undergo an eight-day trial, with the attacker understood to hold a European passport due to his father being German.

Zaha to for medical

Ferguson is also hopeful of finally completing a £15m deal to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace on Thursday, according to the Mirror.

The report claims a £15million package has been agreed with the Championship outfit and a medical could be arranged in Manchester within the next 24 hours.

Fergie is understood to have played a key role in the signing of Zaha, with the Mirror suggesting he skipped the clubs training camp in Qatar to personalty meet the 20-year-old to persuade him to move to Old Trafford.

It seems to have worked with the newspaper claiming the deal is now all but done and Zaha will be loaned back to Palace for the rest of the season before linking up with his new team mates in the summer.

**Update** The BBC are now also reporting that Zaha is due to undergo a medical in Manchester within the next 48 hours ahead of a £15m deal, with United paying £10m up front.

    united need wingers to win games…nani not playing, valencia lost form, ashley young full of injuries and inconsistent….where are the goals that we used to score—-i know we have scored a lot goals mostly by van persie we definately need wingers—but first things first, we desperately need a goalkeeper,, sory de gea will not win any cups this year,he lost cups last year…we should sign existing goalkepers from the epl

    Sir thanks but why still loaning him we deliberately need winger pls don’t loan him. Man utd operates through wing since the departure of ronaldo utd miss that wing no crossing no skillful winger. Please don’t loan him
