Sky Sports journalist Nizar Kinsella discloses that Manchester United is actively pursuing Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise as a prime transfer target during the ongoing transfer window.
Winger Jadon Sancho, who is sought after by former club Borussia Dortmund for a possible loan, and striker Anthony Martial, who is out of contract, are both expected to leave Manchester United this year.
Olise could potentially mark Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s first high-profile signing for Man United. United are keen on securing the Frenchman in the winter transfer window, yet Crystal Palace remains reluctant to part ways. In the upcoming summer, Michael Olise’s release clause, which exceeds £35 million, will come into effect.
The 22-year-old Frenchman is anticipated to step in for Jadon Sancho at Manchester United, with Sancho nearing a return to Borussia Dortmund.
Despite missing the start of the current season due to injury, Olise has made a strong impact, scoring 5 goals and contributing 1 assist in 9 Premier League matches since his return. His outstanding performances have earned him the title of MVP in 6 Premier League matches.
