Wilfried Zaha reportedly offered £44m for China move as Crystal Palace battle to keep star man

Wilfried Zaha has reportedly been offered a four-year deal with a minimum of £44m to leave Crystal Palace for Dalian Yifang.

The Chinese Super League side are targeting the Eagles’ star man and are seemingly planning to test the club’s resolve.

According to The Mail, a deal has been tabled which would see Zaha earn £11m-per-year after tax.

At present, the 26-year-old has a contract at Palace – agreed in August – which will keep him at the club until 2023.

It is unlikely that Roy Hodgson’s men will entertain any prospect of losing him, given his importance to the squad.

However, the package that the Ivory Coast international has been offered would see him triple his current £130k-per-week salary and become one of the world’s best-paid footballers.

Dalian Yifang have already secured a couple of big-name acquisitions in the shape of Nicolas Gaitan and Yannick Carrasco. They are managed by former Real Madrid boss Bernd Schuster.
