Chelsea willing to offer winger £150k-a-week to make Stamford Bridge move
Chelsea are prepared to pay Crystal Palace winger Wilfred Zaha £150,000 per week to go to Stamford Bridge, according to reports.
The Ivory Coast international’s five-year deal with Palace expires next summer, and there has been much conjecture regarding where he will play next season.
Chelsea FC is one of the teams said to be interested in the player and willing to grant him a contract if he decides he wants a new challenge and wants to leave Palace.
Graham Potter wants to add some more goals to that Chelsea attack as he has been struggling for goals – and the fact that the club will be able to get Zaha for less than that £80 million valuation means he could come for a bargain.
And if you believe the latest reports in the media – Chelsea are reportedly ready to offer the player a massive £150,000-a-week contract to make the move – a significant boost on his current Palace deal.

Palace are a decent side – but Zaha will never reach his full potential at the club – he is their main man and knows that he no longer has to give 100 per cent.
There will undoubtedly be a lot of interest in his talents over the next several months, but if Chelsea are willing to splash the dough, he would undoubtedly be a very fine addition to that Blues team.
And this would be a very excellent move for Zaha to make since, despite all of the club’s brilliance, they lack a winger like him in the side, so he would have the opportunity to become a regular starter at Stamford Bridge. So, if the Blues come knocking, Zaha would be unwise to refuse.
