It was revealed last month that Ferguson would go head-to-head with Arsene Wenger for the 20-year-old, and it appears that the Arsenal manager have been scared off by Palace's demands, the Daily Mirror reports.
Ferguson has wasted no time in making his move for Zaha during this month's transfer window, as we revealed on December 29.
Spurs have also been chasing Zaha, with chairman Daniel Levy championing their bid to get him, but they backed away this week after realising the player had always viewed it as a straight choice between United and Arsenal.
Premier League leaders United are believed to have offered eight million pound plus add-ons, a loan-back option for the rest of the season and the promise of further player loans to Palace to boost their bid for promotion from the Championship, which take the whole package up to around 12 million pounds.
It is understood Palace manager Ian Holloway, who has a close relationship with Ferguson, believes United's deal to the best on offer, and it could be rubber-stamped in the next few days. (ANI)
