Premier League boss issues surprise advice to United wide-man.
Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha has been advised to quit Old Trafford by his manager at loan club Crystal Palace, according to the Sun.
The England international, who first broke onto the scene at Palace as a youngster, has seen his career go backwards since he made the big move to United at the start of last season.
Zaha has since had a loan spell at Cardiff City and now back at Selhurst Park, but manager Alan Pardew believes he should consider moving elsewhere as it is so difficult to make it at a top four club.
Whilst admitting that the 22-year-old attacker is a talented player, Pardew strongly hinted that he may be lacking in the other attributes needed to truly make it at a big team.
Pardew also suggested that he may not take up the option to sign Zaha permanently, refusing to give too much away regarding the on-loan United man’s future.
“He is a player who needs to get his career on the move again,” said the former Newcastle United boss.
“He has made an impact and needs to build on that. He’s a talent and he needs to nail down a permanent position quickly, whether that is here or at another club.
“You need a lot of other attributes to make it as a top player. It is very difficult for young players to make it at a top-four club.”
