Manchester United Emerges As Front-Runner In Pursuit Of Michael Olise

Michael Olise

Manchester United considered as Prime contenders for Michael Olise transfer amid Crystal Palace exit talks, insider sources reveal.

It is unclear exactly how much a deal to sign Olise would cost but the figure is significantly higher than the £35 million ($43.7m) clause in his previous contract. One source put the amount between £50m and £60m.

Man United are at the head of the queue to sign Olise and are not deterred by being unable to offer Champions League football next season.

However, talks are not at an advanced stage, and United could face competition for his signature from other Premier League rivals.

Chelsea thought they had triggered Olise’s £35m clause last summer, only for the deal to fall down on a technicality.

According to Sources the terms of the clause meant Olise had to inform Palace directly that the clause had been triggered whereas Chelsea attempted to negotiate directly with Palace.

Palace chairman Steve Parish used the ensuing delay and confusion to renegotiate an improved four-year deal with Olise which he subsequently signed.

Liverpool have been credited with an interest in Olise, particularly if Mohamed Salah departs this summer, and both the Merseyside club and Arsenal could offer Champions League football.

Arsenal have reportedly scouted Olise, although Mikel Arteta‘s team are long-term admirers of Wolves’ Pedro Neto.
