Solskjaer set to complete deal to sign Manchester United star

Michael Regan

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will take Wilfried Zaha on loan for the rest of the season at Cardiff City, according to reports, as the Manchester United legend continues his transfer business. Newcastle United had been linked but it seems that Solskjaer has won out.

Manchester United's Wilfried Zaha will go to Cardiff City on loan for the rest of the season, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.

The winger was Sir Alex Ferguson's last ever purchase, but has barely played under David Moyes, despite the poor form of United's other options on the wing, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks by far the likeliest to secure his signature, beating Newcastle to a deal.

Hopefully Zaha can do well, but it still seems odd given how atrocious our wingers have been and the slim likelihood of buying any in this window that we're weakening our squad given our position in the league. But there's no question that Zaha needs games, and if we aren't going to play him, this is the best option.

Whether something has gone on behind the scenes or not is open to speculation. The Daily Mail certainly seem to think so, and it might actually be more palatable than the alternative of David Moyes thinking Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young have been perfectly fine.

I'm also slightly concerned about the overall handsomeness level of our team, and this reduces it even further, but right now that's a secondary worry.
