How Manchester United can gain financially from Wilfried Zaha sale

According to the Daily Star, Manchester United will receive a financial boost if Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha leaves the club this summer. The Ivory Coast international endured a tough time at United after being signed by Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.

He made just four appearances for the Red Devils and was predominantly out on loan. Zaha eventually signed for Crystal Palace in the summer of 2015.

The 27-year-old has since thrived at Selhurst Park and has rebuilt his reputation. He is now linked with a move to Everton and Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth £40m.

Manchester United inserted a 25 percent sell-on clause in the Wilfried Zaha deal

In hindsight, it was smart of United to insert a sell-on clause in the move that took Zaha to Palace. According to the report, United will receive 25% of any transfer fee Palace receive this summer.

This will be a welcome addition to United’s transfer kitty ahead of what is an important summer for the club. With Champions League qualification secured, the Red Devils now have a strong base to build upon.

A return to the premier European competition will make the club a desirable choice for some of our targets. A larger kitty will see us reinforce the squad well enough to present a threat to Liverpool and Manchester City.

It was confirmed by Palace manager Roy Hodgson that Zaha wants to leave the club. Hopefully, the Eagles can drive a bargain and demand top dollar for their star player.

United have been heavily linked with a move for Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish. The club is also on the lookout for a new central defender to partner Harry Maguire.

Evert penny matters, especially in this financial climate. Zaha might as well make his biggest contribution to the club, five years since leaving Old Trafford.
