January 24th 2019

Borussia Dortmund are reportedly interested in signing Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace in the summer. The Guardian are reporting the Bundesliga leaders want to break their transfer record to sign him.

A deal of over £50 million is being mooted by Palace, after Zaha recently signed a new £130,000 a week that lasts until 2023 to become the club’s highest-earning player. Palace fans would surely not begrudge the move for the 26-year-old if he was to move to Germany, with Zaha supposedly open to the move as he’s keen to play in the Champions League.
