According to a report from the Telegraph, Wilfried Zaha has informed Crystal Palace that he is determined to leave Selhurst Park in the summer and is set to push for a move away in the coming weeks.

The 26-year-old has been hugely impressive for the Eagles this season and has scored 10 goals and has provided a further 10 assists in the Premier League.

His performances have attracted some of the big clubs and he could force himself out of the club to achieve his ambitions. 

 

Zaha has expressed his interest to move to a bigger club to play in Europe and the report reveals that he is prepared to return to Manchester United, the club who sold him over four years ago.

Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund are also reported to be keen on the Ivory Coast international but his asking price could scare them off. 

Crystal Palace are demanding a staggering fee of £100 million before they even consider the deal according to the report. A transfer anywhere near that enormous price tag will break the British transfer record and Arsenal have reportedly turned their attention to Ryan Fraser who they feel will cost them considerably less.

Zaha is said to have a sense of unfinished business at United, for whom he played just four times. The winger will back himself to be a success and will seriously consider a move to his former club should they bid according to the report. 

The report also says there is a sense that Palace could accept a slightly lesser fee of £70 million, which is still a huge amount but, with Zaha's contract running till the summer of 2023, Palace will argue that he's worth it.
