Zaha should leave this summer – Jordan
Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has claimed now is the right time to sell Wilfried Zaha.
The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a move for the last few seasons and reports claim he has now asked for a summer switch.
Zaha is hoping to play Champions League football next term but the Eagles are determined to hold onto the forward, who they value at £80million.
Palace have refused to comment on the speculation but Jordan believes the club should cash in while they have the chance.
He told talkSPORT: ‘Without wanting to alienate myself from a group of fans I adore, I think now is the time for Zaha to go.
‘I think Palace need a change of direction and probably need to be able to rebuild with the right amount of monies being achieved for Zaha.
‘Now, I don’t think that right amount of monies is likely to be £80m, but I certainly think it’s in the £50m or £60m bracket and I think he can play for any of the top-six clubs.
‘I think he’s a £60m player – I think he’s every bit as good as (Riyad) Mahrez.
‘So I’m not surprised now Wilf wants the opportunity to ply his trade somewhere else.’
