Wilfried Zaha: Crystal Palace prepared to let star man leave for whopping £80m this summer

Crystal Palace have slapped an £80million price tag on Wilfried Zaha, according to reports.

The Mail on Sunday claim that the Eagles are prepared to let the wantaway forward leave this summer, but only for the right price.

Crystal Palace are prepared to sell Wilfried Zaha for £80m this summer

Zaha recently revealed he wants to leave Selhurst Park in order to realise his ambition of playing Champions League football.

And the former Manchester United man is likely to get his wish granted this summer, with a host of Europe’s top clubs chasing his signature.

Arsenal have shown a long-standing interest in the 26-year-old, with club representatives watching him on numerous occasions.

Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan have also expressed an interest in Zaha, while Tottenham are unlikely to afford a deal to sign the tricky playmaker.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is regarded as one of the best youngsters in the world

PALACE’S RECORD WITH AND WITHOUT ZAHA

Palace have a win percentage of more than double when Wilfried Zaha plays compared to when he doesn’t, underlining his value to the Eagles side

 

WITH/WITHOUT:

GAMES: 59/13

GOALS: 20/2

DEFEATS:22/11

GOALS PER GAME: 1.3/0.5

WIN PERCENTAGE: 34/15

The ongoing situation with Zaha is likely to have an impact on team-mate Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s future.

The Palace right back, 21, is regarded as one of the best young talents in the world and is attracting interest from the Premier League’s elite.

There is, however, a huge reluctance at Selhurst Park to let both Zaha and Wan-Bissaka leave in the same summer, with club hierarchy fully aware of the backlash they’d receive from supporters.
