Man United, Chelsea Quoted Asking Price For Premier League Target


Manchester United and Chelsea have been told how much it will cost to sign transfer target Wilfried Zaha who plays his club football for Premier League outfit Crystal Palace.

According to The Sun, the two clubs will need to produce a transfer fee of £70m to have any chance of signing Ivorian international Zaha from Crystal Palace.

Wilfried Zaha came close to leaving Crystal Palace in the summer with the likes of Arsenal and Everton interested in him but they were unable to meet the £80m transfer fee set by his club in the summer.

That £80m asking price is down to £70m ahead of the January transfer window with Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish recently admitting that the aforementioned Zaha is available for a transfer at the right amount.

Manchester United and Chelsea are both keen on a January swoop for Zaha according to the above mentioned publication though the Blues will have to scale through the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) hearing into their two-window transfer ban to have a chance of signing the Ivorian player in January.

For Manchester United, Zaha was previously on their payroll and they had to let him return to Crystal Palace after he flopped badly at Old Trafford following his £15m transfer in 2013.
