£130k-a-week signing ‘will walk straight into Chelsea team’ – Boehly told
Todd Boehly has been told Chelsea must sign Wilfried Zaha because the Crystal Palace star would ‘walk into the team’.
The 29-year-old has developed into one of the very best wingers in the Premier League and is a man that should be playing at one of the top teams in the division.
He has been heavily linked with an exit from Selhurst Park for some time now as he continues to impress for the Eagles – and now Ted Boehly has been encouraged to make a move to try and get a deal done for the man
And According to 90min, the club are still keen on signing the 30-year-old Premier League star after lining up a move for him last summer.
Now, amid all the speculation – Reporter Iomie Stanley has claimed that Zaha would be a very good signing for the club: “On current form he is walking into the team.
“What I would tell him is, ‘Go and follow your heart Wilfried’ – because the one thing he has earned is the respect of all the Palace fans, the respect of football fans up and down the country. I think Wilfried Zaha has absolutely earned his stripes.
“He does not owe anybody anything and he owes himself the opportunity to go and make the right decision, whatever he wants to do.
“If that is to stay at Palace, me, I’d be the same as the Palace fans, I’d be absolutely delighted.
“I think in this day and age there is just something refreshing to see a guy play the vast majority of his career at one club and have an affinity with the support.
There’s just something beautiful and refreshing about it. If that was the case I would be thrilled, and I bet [Patrick] Vieira and the Palace fans would be thrilled.
“However, if he decides, ‘I fancy a couple of years abroad’ – good on him. He has earned that opportunity.”
