Following our victory over Chelsea on Saturday, many people inside and outside of the club have started to look towards next season with genuine hope of Premier League survival in the minds, and now, Steve Parish has spoken about the possibility of bringing Wilfried Zaha back to SE25, should the opportunity present itself this summer.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, the Palace co-chairman said:
“Wilf’s a fantastic player, I certainly think we would be interested. United have not said anything official, he’s their player, but if a player like that did become available then I am sure we would be interested.
“If we are fortunate enough to stay in the division, we will be looking to kick on and establish ourselves and try to get up to mid-table and be a bit more comfortable.
“Wilfried is a player who is worthy of the division and is a player who could help anybody. We saw him come on for Cardiff at the weekend and he changed the game, so if a situation arose for that kind of player, of course we would be interested.”
Despite Zaha’s impact in Cardiff’s game at The Hawthorns on Saturday, it seems as if Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer feels there are better options available to him within the club, hence the lack of a starting role for the winger, leading to questions over whether Cardiff would even be interested in going back in for Zaha, should the avoid relegation.
With a spending spree expected at United this summer, it’s likely that Zaha will be allowed to move on should any serious offers come in, and with our interest sure to be genuine, the only question is whether or not Zaha himself would be happy to return. Somehow, I don’t think we’ll have any problems there…
