Wilfried Zaha is good enough to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona, believes Crystal Palace legend Clinton Morrison.

The 25-year-old has gone from strength to strength at Selhurst Park, after an unsuccessful stint at Manchester United, and is absolutely pivotal to Roy Hodgson’s side.

Palace have not won a Premier League game without Zaha since September 2016 and the Ivory Coast international was linked with a move away during the transfer window.

Although he stayed and signed a new five-year deal in the summer – one which made him Palace’s best paid player and did not include a release clause – Morrison thinks it is only a matter of time before he moves to a bigger club.

“They’ve got a lot of good players and Wilf Zaha is the standout player,” Morrison told Yahoo Sport’s ‘The Football Show’, after revealing he is confident they can finish in the top ten.

“He’s a superstar! I’ve been speaking to him and he said it’s different this season trying to adjust his game. He’s been playing upfront off Benteke, instead of coming from the left and you can see him getting frustrated.

“He’s a top, top player, I believe he could play for one of the top four teams or even Barcelona or Real Madrid. He’s a superstar and when he has the ball at his feet he makes things happen.

“Eventually he’ll leave, but we have to make the most of them while he is there.”
