Pulis is at loggerheads with Crystal Palace over transfers and could leave

first_imgThe Daily Mail’s football news correspondent Neil Ashton has revealed Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis is locked in crisis talks with co-chairman Steve Parish over transfer policy and could leave the club.The Eagles boss has cut a frustrated figure this summer after missing out on a number of key targets including Michu, Steven Caulker and Gylfi Sigurdsson.Palace have made four summer signings but the journalist believes that Pulis expected greater backing after he performed miracles in keeping the club in the Premier League when taking over from Ian Holloway last November.“I would imagine Tony felt in the summer, that having taken Palace from four points to finishing 11th in the Premier League, he was going to be backed in a way that Palace have never backed a manager in the past, in terms of the players they wanted to attract,” Ashton told Kick Off.“Gylfi Sigurdsson was one of them as was Michu and Steven Caulker. They’ve all gone to different clubs for different reasons.”And Ashton added it remains feasible that Pulis could leave the club just two days before they kick off their Premier League campaign against Arsenal on Saturday evening, live on talkSPORT.“My fear is that’s what is going to happen. It’s come to a head. This is a decision where they’re either going to resolve it and find a way forward.“Or they’re going to accept they cannot work together anymore and everybody has to move on in as amicable a parting of ways as possible for something that is so monumental in the Premier League – which is to lose a manager before the start of the season.”Arsenal’s opening game of the Premier League season against Crystal Palace is live on talkSPORT from 5.30pm on Saturday.
