It is very strange, but it does seem like Parish (Palace chairman) is trying to play this very carefully, he must know selling Zaha will put their fans in meltdown, and seems he needs the money/wants to let Zaha leave.I still just find it odd that absolutely no media source has picked up on this at all given there are three clubs involved. Doesn’t make much sense...
There are media links to him, just no mention of bids yet. Only 4 parties can leak these supposed bids - Palace, Chelsea, Us or Zaha's people. My guess is Parish agreed the fee but has asked for time to get replacements in, much like us with Bale.
