Crystal Palace Want £80 Million To Sell Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace Want £80 Million To Sell Wilfried Zaha

Wilfried Zaha is a wanted man around Europe for his excellent form for Crystal Palace but the south London club have slapped an £80 million transfer fee on their player.

For the last few years Wilfried Zaha has often been referred to the best player in the Premier League outside of the top six but the winger wants nothing more than being back inside the top six.

Ever since his move to Manchester United turned into a failure, not necessarily his fault, the Ivory Coast international has had to prove himself once again.

Speaking to the Daily Mail yesterday he revealed a desire to play in the Champions League, saying, "For me to be better, to achieve what I know I am capable of, I have to aim to play at the very highest level, to win trophies.

"I have to experience the Champions League. I just need the opportunity, that's it. And I'll do the rest."

It was thought last summer that Crystal Palace might have to sell their winger but instead he signed a new £130,000 a week deal but now it looks like he could be sold this summer.

According to the same paper on Sunday the south London side are willing to let the 26 year old go for around £80 million.

In the past Arsenal, Spurs and even a return to Old Trafford have been mentioned as potential destinations for Zaha.

However staying in England might not be his only option. The report names as Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund as two clubs who could be interested.

The big stumbling block for many teams would be that £80 million price tag, even with today's heightened transfer fees.

According to the paper, with Palace ready to let Zaha go they are desperate to keep hold of right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The young English full back could be even hotter property, if he were available, with United and Spurs both looking to strengthen in that area whilst Pep Guardiola would likely also be interested.

Zaha's nine goals kept Roy Hodgson's side in the Premier League last season and his eight goals have once again been a huge contribution in Palace staying in the top tier this year.

Will Zaha be able to make the next step up and who will pay £80 million on the winger?
