Wilfried Zaha Tells Teammates He’s Leaving - Wants Chelsea Move

Chelsea offer £30m plus £35m player to sign Tottenham's top target

Chelsea offer £30m plus £35m player to sign Tottenham's top target

The west London outfit are ready to spend £45m plus £15m in add ons to land the former Manchester United winger after his impressive campaign at Palace under Roy Hodgson, The Sun claim.

The ex-England boss sees Zaha as vital to his plans and will not allow the wide-man - who they failed to win a league game without last term - to leave.

That puts Chelsea in the driving seat, though it will take a significant sum to tempt Palace into cashing in on their academy product for the second time in his career.

But they shouldn't worry too much yet, as the club have no pressure to sell the Ivorian should the Blues not come close to the £70 million Parish wants as he's tied down to a long-term contract.

He has attracted interest from a number of clubs, with Spurs, Everton and Borussia Dortmund all having been linked, but according to The Mirror, he is keen to force a move to Chelsea.

Musk says he may take Tesla private and shares roar
Tesla now has a market value around $60 billion, which would make its take-private price tag about $80 billion, Galloway said. Elon Musk is considering taking Tesla Inc private, the chief executive officer of the electric auto maker tweeted on Tuesday.

Townsend, who won a penalty which Luka Milivojevic converted against Toulouse, insists he is not leaving Palace despite newspaper speculation linking him with a return to Newcastle.

The thing with Wilf is very simple.

"Everyone likes him, everyone admires him, he knows that and I think he likes and respects the club as well".

"Pape [Souare], James Tomkins and Luka [Milivojevic], everybody has helped me to settle into this team and now I must continue to work hard for this season and hopefully have an unbelievable season for this team".

Chelsea have made just two signings so far this summer, bringing in midfielder Jorginho from Napoli, which was followed by the acquisition of veteran goalkeeper Robert Green.
