Ivory Coast forward Wilfried Zaha is the target of a £9 million per season deal from Al-Ittihad of Saudi Arabia, according to the Daily Mail
Zaha’s Crystal Palace deal expires in the summer, and he is thinking about his long-term options. According to the report, Palace has presented Zaha with the most lucrative contract in the club’s history, which is estimated to be worth close to £200,000 per week (includes bonuses and other payouts).
Zaha is solely focused on completing the season as strongly as he can before making a final decision on his future, but interest in signing him on a free transfer at the end of the season is growing. Last week, it was revealed that Zaha was a potential acquisition for Al-Nassr, who had just acquired Cristiano Ronaldo.
Al-Ittihad, their Saudi rivals, are attempting to gazump the move after surpassing Al-Nassr this past weekend at the summit of the Pro League. The Al-Ittihad deal is equivalent to receiving £320,000 per week before taxes in England. The club is being managed by former Wolves and Tottenham coach, Nuno Espirito Santo.
Zaha has also drawn interest from other European clubs, with AC Milan among the teams keeping an eye on his position.
