Roy Hodgson has refused to rule out selling Wilfried Zaha and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer after reports linking both to Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær is said to have identified Wan-Bissaka as United’s next long-term right-back with Antonio Valencia set to leave the club at the end of the season and Ashley Young turning 34 in July.

Zaha has also been linked with a return to Old Trafford after signing under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, however, David Moyes didn’t give the Ivorian many chances to prove himself at United and he was later sold under Louis van Gaal.

Jadon Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi are both reportedly also on the Red Devils’ radar, but a move for Zaha could be more realistic.

Palace boss Hodgson has now admitted that potential moves for the duo could happen this summer and admitted the Eagles have to be ‘realistic’. As quoted by the Express, Hodgson said: “We would be more than happy to keep them. But we just have to remain realistic and see what happens.”

“If offers come in they will obviously be assessed, like everything else. As I heard Manuel Pellegrini quite rightly say the other day, [when discussing Declan Rice] every footballer player does have a price.”
