    Man Utd are in line for tasty transfer windfall should Wilfried Zaha leave Crystal Palace this summer.

    Zaha hopes to find himself at a new club before pre-season training begins next month.

    Should the ace indeed be sold by Palace, former club United will reportedly cash in too.

    Zaha left Selhurst Park for a short spell at Old Trafford before returning in 2015.

    And the Manchester Evening News claims part of that second deal saw Palace include a 25 per cent sell-on clause in their offer to United.

    Zaha is widely expected to fetch at least £40million, with suitors including Tottenham and Everton.

    And that would see United automatically bank a minimum of £10m for this summer’s transfer kitty.

    Man Utd owner Joel Glazer has insisted he is committed to the growth and development of the club's women team.

    The 50-year-old businessman addressed the concerns of United Women fan group Barmy Army.

    The Army had voiced their worries to United's board following reports that poor conditions at Leigh Sports Village was the reason behind ex-boss Casey Stoney's exit last season.

    They wanted reassurances that things will be done to help United Women reach their goals and said they were open to working with the board.

    And Glazer, to their surprise, met with them to do just that.

    He said: "As you all know, we have also been focused on growing and developing our women’s team in line with the traditions and values of the club, and we are committed to continuing that process."

    Jack Grealish will not move to Manchester City or Manchester United this summer, according to former Aston Villa team-mate Gabriel Agbonlahor.

    He told talkSPORT: “Jack Grealish will stay, is what I’m hearing, and Villa will invest as well.

    “Who can afford him? If Aston Villa were going to sell him they’d want over £100m.

    “And do Man City need him? They’ve already got the likes of [Phil] Foden, [Kevin] De Bruyne and [Ilkay] Gundogan. They’re looking for a striker as well, so are they going to spend £100m [on Grealish]?

    “Man City and Man United are the only ones that would go for him in the Premier League, but with COVID are these teams going to want to pay £100m or £130m?

    “I’m not too sure.”

    Man Utd are lining up a shock move for Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks, according to reports.

    The Spurs outcast started just nine Premier League games for the Lilywhites last season as he found himself out of favour under Jose Mourinho.

    And now Man Utd are said to be considering a surprising move for the former England international.

    Stretty News are claiming that Tottenham are open to a £25million offer for Winks and that the Red Devils are assessing the option.

    However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is notoriously tough to strike a deal with in the transfer market so the North London club may well hold out for a bigger offer.

    Winks came through the youth set-up at Spurs having signed for them as a young boy.

    Manchester United have received a boost in their pursuit of Kingsley Coman after reports his contract talks with Bayern Munich have stalled.

    The 24-year-old has two years left on his current deal, with the German giants trying to tie him down to a new contract.

    But Sport1 are now reporting that those contract discussions between Bayern and Coman's father have hit a roadblock.

    Meanwhile, Man Utd are reportedly willing to offer Coman £200,000 per week AFTER tax.

    The Red Devils have apparently 'indicated' to the Frenchman they are willing to meet his demands – and make him their joint fifth top earner.

    But there is no guarantee of a quick transfer as Bayern are in no rush to make a decision on his future.

    And the Bundesliga champions will be able to demand a hefty fee with Transfermarkt valuing him at £58.5million.

    Kingsley Coman could be set for a move to England if he cannot agree a new contract with Bayern
