Chelsea could ‘retaliate’ against Barcelona by outbidding them in signing Wilfried Zaha
Barcelona, Chelsea and a number of other European clubs, are both interested in Wilfried Zaha.
According to the Evening Standard, Chelsea, Barcelona, and Juventus are all keeping a close eye on Zaha as they wait to see if he will stay with Crystal Palace.
The 29-year-old player has less than a year left on his contract at Selhurst Park, but he hasn’t said anything definitive about his future with the Eagles.
Given that time is no longer on the attacker’s side, it stands to reason that he would want to advance his career before it’s too late.
If a player is good enough to compete against the best, he or she should aspire to play in the Champions League at some point in their career.
As a result, it appears that teams such as Chelsea and Barcelona are keeping a close eye on Palace’s star player while waiting for a decision.
Zaha would find it difficult to turn down such enticing offers, especially if it meant staying in London, where he has spent the majority of his life.
The people in charge of Patrick Vieira’s club appear to be concerned that the Ivory Coast international may be tempted away by a better offer elsewhere.
Deliverables from Stamford Bridge will be significantly superior to those from Camp Nou.
Despite the fact that Todd Boehly’s finances can be said to be strong beyond that of Barcelona, he is able to outbid his competitors.
It wouldn’t be difficult for Boehly to pay the talented winger more than the £130,000 per week he currently earns.
Earlier this summer, the Catalan club beat Chelsea to the signings of Jules Kounde and Raphinha. If Chelsea were to sign the Premier League trickster before Barcelona, it would be seen as a way of retaliating against Barcelona.
Others, on the other hand, may be wary because Graham Potter already has a large number of forwards to keep happy.
When another person is introduced into the equation, some members of the Cobham camp may become uneasy.
