Man Utd refuse to write off 25 per cent Wilfried Zaha sell-on clause as part of Aaron Wan-Bissaka transfer from Crystal Palace


MANCHESTER UNITED have won a battle of wills against Crystal Palace to keep their 25 per cent sell-on clause for Wilfried Zaha.

The Red Devils have finally agreed a deal to sign Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka for £50million.


Man Utd have kept their 25 per cent clause on Wilfried Zaha

But the BBC claims one of the sticking points in the negotiation was Zaha’s sell-on clause, which was negotiated when he left Old Trafford to return to Selhurst Park in 2016.

It means United are entitled to 25 per cent of his next transfer fee.

And Palace were hoping to get rid of it as they discussed the terms of Wan-Bissaka’s exit.

However, United were adamant that the clause remained.

And it could come in handy with Arsenal looking to sign Zaha this summer.

SunSport understands Unai Emery is ready to break the bank for the Ivory Coast international.

And he is willing to shell out a club-record £80million.

That would entitle United to a tasty £20m, which would go some way towards bankrolling Wan-Bissaka’s reported £90,000-a-week contract.
