Crystal Palace confident of Wilfried Zaha contract extension

Browse By

Crystal Palace are confident they can convince Wilfried Zaha to remain at Selhurst Park beyond this season.

Zaha has spent nearly his entire career with Palace, aside from a short-lived spell with Manchester United. But is approaching the final month of his current contract. And has received plenty of interest from both England and mainland Europe.

Palace have enjoyed a sensational resurgence following the return of Roy Hodgson to the Selhurst Park dugout and have climb their way up to 12th in the Premier League. Comfortably steering themselves away from a relegation battle with a run of five wins and a draw in their last eight games.

The Ivory Coast international has never hidden his desire to play in the Champions League. And could get that with a move to Ligue 1 side Marseille. While Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ittihad are understood to have lodged an offer.

In England, Arsenal and Chelsea are both long-term admirers of Zaha but neither have made firm offers to the 30-year-old, who is now considering staying with Palace.

Indeed, sources have confirmed to UFABET that Palace are growing in confidence that their efforts to retain Zaha will lead to an agreement over a contract extension which could be worth close to £200,000 per week.
