Chelsea handed real boost in bid to try and sign £130k-a-week star
Chelsea have been handed a massive boost in their chase to try and sign Wilfred Zaha in the coming windows
We are just one of a number of clubs that are reportedly interested in the player and are ready to offer him a contract should he decide that he fancies a fresh challenge in the game and wants out of Palace
Graham Potter wants to add some more goals to that Chelsea attack as he has been struggling for goals – and the fact that the club will be able to get Zaha for less than that £80 million valuation means he could come for a bargain.
And according to the Daily Mail, negotiations are not going well despite Zaha, already the club’s highest earner on a reported £130,000-a-week, being verbally offered the most lucrative deal in Palace’s history.
Such a contract is not unwarranted, with Zaha arguably the greatest player in Palace’s history, but it could be that the winger sees this as his last opportunity to move to a top team with his 30th birthday just around the corner.
If you believe the words of Iomie Stanley – he would definitely sign that Contract offer from the club should it actually arrive
He said: ‘Palace are a decent side – but Zaha will never reach his full potential at the club – he is their main man and knows that he no longer has to give 100 per cent
‘There will be alot of interest in his services over the next few months we are sure – but if Chelsea are ready to splash the cash- he would certainly be a very good addition to that Blues side
‘And this would be a very good move for Zaha to make – as despite all the clubs talent – they are lacking a winger like him in the side – so he would have the chance to become a regular start at Stamford Bridge
‘So if the Blues do come calling – place that contract onto the table – he will surely sign it as it would give him the big move he is looking for.’
