Tottenham happen to be warned by Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish that Wilfried Zaha isn’t for sale this transfer window.
Wilfried Zaha is “100 per cent” staying at Crystal Palace according to the Premier League club’s chairman Steve Parish, who labelled Tottenham’s bid for the forward as “ridiculous”.
Tottenham have stepped up their chase for the 23-year-old Zaha in current days, with manager Mauricio Pochettino keen to land the English winger.
Even so, Parish believes Tottenham’s initial bid was far too low for their liking, and insists Zaha are going to be going nowhere before the transfer window closes.
“We had a bid from Spurs but ￡12million – it is ridiculous. I can’t consider that they’re serious,” Parish told talkSPORT.
“There is no opportunity whatsoever of Wilfried Zaha leaving the club in this transfer window.
“I can totally reassure every single Palace fan he is an integral a part of our plans.
“We’ve told Spurs that there is certainly truly no point bidding for him because he’s going nowhere – 100 per cent guaranteed.”
Parish went on criticise Tottenham’s techniques, saying: “It’s not suitable seriously that players get their heads turned.
“I was told that the manager there thinks he’s the following [Cristiano] Ronaldo. Nicely I’d like to get the subsequent Ronaldo for ￡12m.”
He added: “I have not spoken to the player. The manager and the player may have had a conversation but I’m chairman of the football club.
“I make a decision who leaves and he’s not leaving. He’ll need to get his head around that.
“It is challenging for Wilfried since a large club have come in for him, but we choose to finish ahead of these clubs. We will need to convince Wilfried that he can attain what he desires here and that conversation will happen once the transfer window is closed.”
