Confirmed! – Man United move ahead of Premier League rivals to sign 22-year-old winger

Verified! According to ESPN, Manchester United is in the lead in the chase to sign Crystal Palace star Michael Olise, moving ahead of their Premier League rivals.

The 22-year-old’s outstanding performance for the Eagles has drawn interest from some of the biggest clubs in England.

It’s thought that the Crystal Palace player’s contract has a release clause that kicks in at the end of the current campaign.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe has stated that Olise is the most crucial player they need to sign before they start their summer rebuilding, and Man United is thought to be the front-runner to land him.

The Frenchman has seven goals and four assists in 16 games, and Man United is growing more interested in him in anticipation of a possible summer transfer.

Man United might be willing to offer Aaron Wan-Bissaka as part of any deal in order to help boost their transfer budget, given the financial fair play (FFP) restrictions.

When Mauricio Pochettino’s team thought they had activated Olise’s release clause last year, their transfer saw a dramatic collapse. The 22-year-old did, however, go on to sign a new contract with Palace.

Other Premier League teams might pose a threat to the Red Devils, and talks between Man United and Palace are not yet at an advanced stage.

The Red Devils’ statistics show that they have had difficulty creating and scoring goals this season.

With just 52 goals in the league this season, Man United and Bournemouth have combined for the fewest goals scored in the top 10.

This season, their wide players—Marcus Rashford and Antony—have had difficulty making an impression.

Unlike transfer rivals Liverpool and Arsenal, the Red Devils are unfazed by the possibility that they won’t be able to give Olise Champions League football.

Man United ought to make a major push for the Palace winger. According to reports, Ratcliffe is a fan of the player and wants his team to sign him.

Mohamed Salah is expected to play for Liverpool for at least another season, so Liverpool’s interest in him would only have made sense if the Egyptian was leaving the team.

Bukayo Saka currently plays left wing for Arsenal, so Olise would struggle to get a spot in the squad ahead of the England international.

For the player and the team, moving to Old Trafford makes sense and would be advantageous to all sides.
