Zaha signed for United for £15m in 2013 after impressing Sir Alex Ferguson, who saw him as one of the country’s hottest prospects.

The 23-year-old eventually left the club two years later after making just four appearances and having not started for the Red Devils in the Premier League.
Now he is set to face his old club in a Wembley FA Cup final for Crystal Palace.
Zaha said: “Everyone goes on about Manchester United all the time but they’re just another team in the final.
