Huge boost for Man Utd, Spurs as £80m target asks to leave club

Reported Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs target Wilfried Zaha has told Crystal Palace he wishes to leave this summer, it is claimed.

It was recently reported that Palace are open to letting Zaha leave at the end of the season, but will look for a fee of £75m – £80m for their prized asset.

Zaha been linked with a return to Manchester United in the past, and is also apparently interesting Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund and PSG.

Now, the Daily Mail claim that Zaha has asked to leave Palace this summer in order to play Champions League football next season.

The south London side are apparently ‘resigned’ to losing their key man, but will demand a huge £80million fee so they can replenish other areas of their squad.

This has left the Ivorian with the fear that he may be priced out of a move this summer, which is why he has chosen to meet chairman Steve Parish and inform him of his desire to leave.

The Eagles were reported to have come to an arrangement with Zaha’s agent that the player will only consider offers from European-based Champions League sides.

If true, that would rule out Spurs, United and leave Borussia Dortmund and PSG in the driving seat .
