Simon Jordan shared that in an “ideal world” Leeds and Newcastle target Ben Brereton Diaz would be used in a “Wilfried Zaha-type scenario”, as he told talkSPORT.
The Blackburn striker has scored 20 league goals this season and is wanted by several Premier League clubs.
On the one hand, Blackburn doesn’t want to lose the player in January because they are pushing for a promotion, but on the other hand, they could make a lot of money selling him next month.
During the January 2013 transfer window, Palace, who were seeking promotion to the Premier League, sold their star player Zaha to Manchester United but loaned him directly and he helped them get promoted.
Former palace owner and expert Jordan believes this would be the ‘perfect’ situation for Brerorton Diaz and Blackburn amid the interest in his service.
“If I’m Blackburn I look at that saying ‘how compelling the offers are,’” Jordan said.
“Brighton and Leeds. Okay, why are they buying it? I would love to know because that might give me the opportunity to sell it and then loan it out for the rest of the season and help me finish the job I have.
“What I would like to do, in an ideal world, is Wilfried Zaha script, which Manchester United did when they bought Zaha from Palace. Paid £ 13million. I loaned him. “He goes back to the Palace. Scores the play-off semi-final winner against Brighton. And the next thing you know, they’re in the Premier League.”
“In the same way you can also position the player and say ‘if you’re going to continue in that vein of form then you might get a move in the summer that could replace Brighton and Leeds.’
While this is an “ideal” situation for Blackburn, it wouldn’t be for clubs like Leeds and Newcastle, who want to sign him, according to Eurosport.
The reason they are pushing for his talents is that they need some extra purpose and quality in their quest to fight relegation.
There is no point in either team paying that much money for a player and then getting it when relegated.
Perhaps another Premier League team, higher in the league, ready to wait, could make such a deal, but either way, the Chilean star has a big decision to make regarding his future over the next few months. weeks to come.
