Isn’t it surprising to hear that a Chelsea player will determine the future of a Crystal Palace winger? That’s the situation Wilfred Zaha finds himself due to Sarri’s interest in his signature.
Having turned down an offer from Manchester United, Tottenham and Crystal Palace — who want to extend his contract — in favour of Chelsea’s offer, the Ivorian now face an unclear future as Willian seems to be the deciding figure in his proposed move to the Stamford Bridge.
According to reports, the Blues have received an offer from Manchester United for Willian services, but they are yet to give a positive response to the Old Trafford outfits.
Despite being reluctant to let go of the Brazilian winger, the Blues might eventually sanction his move to Old Trafford, should they receive an eye-catching offer from Ed Woodward before the close of this window.
As for Zaha, he is being tracked by Tottenham but he prefers a move to Chelsea but that will only happen if Willian is sold to United, that’s according to the Daily Mail.
The transfer media outlet are reporting that the Ivorian might need to rescind his decision because he could only move to Chelsea as Willian’s replacement ahead of next season.
Should the Brazilian decides to stay put at Stamford Bridge, then the 25-year-old winger, who is valued at £70m by Selhurst Park outfits, will need to join another club, who are interested in his services as soon as possible.
