Wilfried Zaha Scores Incredible Goal In Crystal Palace Training

Wilfried Zaha is a wanted man in the Premier League this summer and the Crystal Palace winger may have added a few extra million on to any potential deal by scoring a worldie in pre season training.

There's an argument to be had for Wilfried Zaha being the most valuable player in the Premier League last season. That's in the fact no single player was as important to his team as the winger was Crystal Palace.

In nine games without Zaha last season Palace won zero points, not a single on, they couldn't even muster a 0-0 draw. In 29 games with him in the side they won all of their 44 points of the season as Roy Hodgson turned around their ridiculously bad start to the season to finish 11th.

Without Zaha's nine goals and three assists, and constant threat, you can't help but feel the Eagles would have been destined for relegation.

So it's no wonder that clubs have been sniffing around him with Spurs chief amongst those reportedly interested. It's also no surprise that Palace want a reported £70 million, well if Richarlison is £50 million.

Unfortunately for any club wanting to sign Zaha the Ivory Coast international just added more value to his transfer with a Van Bastenesque strike:

Zaha signed a new deal at Selhurst park last summer, that keeps him at the club until 2022, but Palace have offered him a new deal again this summer to stave off interest from Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal.

According to reports that would increase his wages up to £120,000 but the 25 year old has turned down the contract as he eyes a move to one of the Premier League's top sides.

Zaha made his name at Palace as a teenager and moved to Manchester United in 2013 for £15 million, agreeing to the move before Sir Alex Ferguson decided to retire.

When he arrived, as a 20 year old, at Old Trafford it wasn't Fergie in charge but David Moyes and he struggled to break into the first team, making just four appearances in the first half of the season before moving back to Selhurst Park, first on loan.

Since his return he has become Palace's most important players and one of the league's best performers, United meanwhile are constantly linked with pacey traditional wingers.
