- Match Analysis
Wilfried Zaha came up through the ranks of Crystal Palace and made his senior debut for the club in the 2010-2011 season. He was instrumental in the club’s promotion to the Premier League before joining Manchester United.
But the winger struggled to find his feet at United as he found himself out favour by then manager David Moyes. In the following season he went to Palace on a loan deal before making the move permanent in 2015.
Since then the 25 year old has been the main man for the Eagles, singlehandedly winning many matches for the club. He has developed himself as one of the best and most exciting forwards in the league.
The Ivory International enjoyed his most productive campaign ever this season, scoring 9 goals and assisting 3 in 29 league appearances despite sidelined for 2 separate spells. His performances helped the club secure the Premier League football as they failed to secure a single victory in the 9 games he missed.
The Ivorian’s excellent campaign has seen linked with a move to the Premier League giants like Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City ahead of the summer transfer window, as he would be considered a home grown player. Though he signed a new five-year deal last summer worth around £110,000 a week.
He has insisted that he is very happy at his boyhood club but recently claimed that he will not put off a big move despite a unsuccessful time with the Red Devils. This further intensified the rumours that he could look for a summer move.
Crystal Palace set to offer Wilfried Zaha new contract to ward off interest from other clubs, reports The Guardian. This improved deal would see him become the top earner at the club ahead of the Belgium striker Christian Benteke.
