Premier League club wrecking Arsenal plans for world class attacker

Manchester United‘s sell-on clause is holding up Arsenal‘s move for Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha.

The London Evening Standard says Arsenal initially bid around £40million for Zaha, while it has been suggested that the Gunners would be willing to offer players to sweeten any deal. But Palace are holding out for £80m.

United included a sell-on clause when they sold Zaha back to Palace in 2015 as part of a deal worth around £6m.

It entitles them to 20 per cent of the profit made on the Ivorian’s sale which, if he were to go for £80m, would be around £15m.

Palace tried to remove the clause as part of the negotiations surrounding Wan-Bissaka’s move to Old Trafford, but they were unable to.

As a result the Eagles have strengthened their resolve around not dropping Zaha’s asking price given the cash windfall Manchester United are due from any deal.
