According to the Daily Mail. Saudi officials have told Zaha representatives they are unwilling to raise an offer. And remember to continue if they agree to the original agreement.

Gerrard, appointed as the new Al Ettifaq manager last week has identified Zaha. As a preferred player before the start of the new season.

Al Ettifaq has made a formal bid of £16m a year for free agent Zaha. Which is already £600,000 per week before tax.

However, sources close to the Pro League have revealed that the deal was broken after Zaha asked for an additional £7.5million to complete the deal. A source from Saudi Arabia said there was not that much money. And they definitely won’t make themselves look like they’ve been extorted.
