After Roy Hodgson admitted Zaha is keen to leave, that's something Palace fans will have to prepare for this summer.
On Sunday evening after Palace's final game of the season, Roy Hodgson admitted that Wilf Zaha has been agitating for a move away for some time. It's not a scenario Eagles are are unfamiliar with but maybe this time it could be time to actually prepare for his deaprture.
"It's obviously affected him because his form in the last few weeks has really been quite poor considering what he is capable of doing," Hodgson said to reporters after the game. "It's a dilemma for the club and a dilemma for him if he is so set on leaving. If he feels he just does not want to be with us any more, that would be sad.
He added: "We still like him very much; we can't make him like us. This is a situation that only he and the club can sort out. I don't have an answer." Strong words from Hodgson who usually tends to keep his powder dry with these sorts of things.
For football clubs, the pandemic has created plenty of cruel scenarios over the last few weeks and months. Liverpool and Leeds Utd fans haven't been able to enjoy their side's title wins.
Fans of League 1 and 2 clubs haven't been able to celebrate play-off wins at Wembley. Luton Town and Barnsley fans haven't been able to see their sides climb out of the bottom three, while Charlton fans haven't been able to witness the utter dejection of their side getting relegated.
And for Palace fans, they didn't get to see Wilfried Zaha, one of the greatest ever Palace players to wear the red and blue, make potentially his last appearance for the club at Selhurst Park. They didn't get to sing his name, or say thank you. They didn't get to say goodbye.
