Today, Wilfried Zaha and Crystal Palace reached a new deal to keep the talented winger in the fold. It is a five-year deal that will pay him £110,000 a week. This brings Zaha into line with the club’s best-paid player, Christian Benteke. This deal will only make Palace better in the future.
It is interesting that Zaha extended his contract with Palace with Tottenham showing interest on buying his services. Tottenham is linked to him, as the Hotspur gaffer Mauricio Pochettino was impressed by the way the Ivory Coast winger performed this past season.
In addition, the 24-year-old winger finished the season with seven goals and nine assists in 35 games played in. He recorded 49 shots. Now, Zaha might not get all of the statistics, but he is a game changer with his speed and he creates tons of chances for his teammates.
Overall, Palace keeps their core together and expect them to make strides next year with Zaha growing into a potential star in the Premier League.
