CRYSTAL PALACE are reportedly demanding Manchester United wipe off their Wilfred Zaha sell-on fee as part of an Aaron Wan-Bissaka transfer deal.
United signed winger Zaha for £15million in 2013 but sold him back to Palace two-years later for just £6m – though the deal included a clause that means the Reds receive a sizeable percentage of any future sell.
The Ivorian has attracted much interest this summer with the player admitting he is open to leaving Selhurst Park and could fetch up to £80m.
Another Palace player set to leave London is right-back Wan-Bissaka – with United seeing an opening bid of £40m rejected.
Palace are demanding upwards of £60m for the England U-21 star and The Guardian report Selhurst chiefs are considering using the transfer to cancel United’s Zaha sell-on fee.
With the threat of United pocketing a percentage of Zaha’s transfer, Palace are wanting to see Old Trafford chiefs terminate their sell-on clause.
It would mean Wan-Bissaka will arrive for a lesser fee and allow Palace to bank all of the Zaha sale.
With Palace holding out for £60m, removing the Zaha sell-on fee could effectively see United save £10m.

The two clubs are set to hold talks over the weekend with Wan-Bissaka already informing Palace bosses he wants a dream move to Old Trafford.
United have long struggled to fill the void at right-back with 33-year-old winger Ashley Young forced to play there last season as club captain Antonio Valencia was frozen out the line up.
SunSport revealed Old Trafford chiefs have scouted the Palace star several times this season and braced themselves for a summer move for the 21-year-old.
