Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce has admitted Tottenham target Wilfried Zaha could leave the club if offered a better deal elsewhere.

Allardyce, speaking at the relaunch of the club’s Palace for Life Foundation, suggested the Eagles must be realistic when it comes to what other clubs can offer.

In quotes relayed by The Daily Star, Allardyce said: “Wilf, us and the clubs that want him will decide his future in the end. There is always a point where it may be impossible to turn down what is offered. That is realistic.

“Hopefully, we do not get to that point for a long time but it may be a possibility. Because it is a rare talent. There should be another 20 or 30 young Wilfried Zahas across the country.

“However, we do not develop enough so foreign players have to come in and take their places.”

The Star’s story claims Manchester City are also interested in Zaha. Even if Spurs can double the 24-year-old’s current money, City could probably double it again.
