Wilfried Zaha has mocked the Daily Mail on social media over a report claiming the Crystal Palace winger was ready to sue his agent over a failed summer move.
Zaha was expected to leave Selhurst Park at the end of last season after helping keep the club in the Premier League during a second stint at the club that lasted five years.
The winger outlined his desire to leave in April and was thought to have held meetings with club chairman Steve Parish over his future.
But Zaha stayed at Palace after neither Arsenal nor Everton could match a valuation that seemed to fluctuate with each week, with £80million reportedly demanded at one point.
And the Daily Mail claimed on Monday evening that Zaha was ‘taking legal action against his agent’ over his ‘failure to secure him a transfer from Crystal Palace last summer’.
However, Zaha moved to deny the allegations on Twitter by laughing them off, he wrote: “do you lot sit and literally wonder what I’m up too then just make up stuff about me.”
