CRYSTAL PALACE are braced to lose star turn Wilfried Zaha for a cut-price £30million.

The forward, 27, wants a move and the club are ready to sell him for the second time.

But there have been no serious takers, despite the reported interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Zaha is Palace’s highest  earner on around £130,000 a week and is under contract until 2023.Those two factors, plus the fact he will turn 28 in November, are putting off admirers.

Zaha was previously  valued at around £70m but Palace chiefs are now resigned to reducing their expectations.

Roy Hodgson guided  the Eagles to 14th this season, which was not one of Zaha’s best.

The Ivory Coast star struggled for goals and found the net just four times — his lowest tally in five years.

Arsenal were heavily interested previously but the emergence of 18-year-old Bukayo Saka has made a move to the  Emirates far less likely.

Zaha has made no secret of his desire to move to a bigger club, even though his £15m move to United in 2013 ultimately failed and he was back at Selhurst Park two years later.

Cash from selling him at a premium would be a big help as Hodgson looks to invest and try to crack the top ten next season.
