Wilfried Zaha Tells Teammates He’s Leaving - Wants Chelsea Move


Wilfried Zaha has told fellow Crystal Palace colleagues he is determined to quit the club and wants a big-money switch to Chelsea, according to the Mirror.

Chelsea are ready to make a decision on whether or not to step up their interest in Wilfried Zaha this summer as part of a transfer meeting at Stamford Bridge.

He is reportedly open to a fresh challenge and has told pals he has an offer to leave the club.

Alderweireld, 29, has plied his professional trade in England since 2014 following a transfer from Atletico Madrid. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is demanding £60million for the centre-back, who is desperately wanted by United.

The Ivory Coast worldwide was key in Palace avoiding relegation from the Premier League last season as his electric displays terrified defences and delighted Palace fans in equal measure.

Chelsea have, so far, been unwilling to spend more than £30m plus players on loan.

Chelsea, Everton and Tottenham are said to be chasing the winger, who impressed under Roy Hodgson last season but he has already snubbed interest from Everton as he is reluctant to move north again, after a failed stint with Manchester United.

Mauricio Pochettino is yet to make a single signing this summer but the Tottenham boss is expected to be busy over the coming days trying to strengthen his squad and Zaha was among the players on his radar.

Zaha, who signed a £100,000-a-week new deal at Selhurst Park just over a year ago, has rejected Palace's offer of a new contract boosting his pay packet by another £25,000-a-week.

But, Chelsea face an uphill task in their bid to sign Zaha in time before the English transfer window closes on August 9.

That gives Chelsea a clear run at the player, although significant hurdles remain if they are to agree a deal before the transfer window closes.
