BREAKING NEWS: reported by Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea are reportedly determined to sign Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise and will push to purchase the Frenchman and have made their number one target ahead of next season regardless of who replaces Mauricio Pochettino this summer. According to reports Chelsea are ready to battle Manchester United for the signing of Olise who is a long time target for Manchester United and have submitted first official bid of £50m for the Frenchman. Chelsea are ‘DESPERATE’ to sign key Man Utd transfer target.


Manchester United’s efforts to sign Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise might be hindered by competition from Chelsea.

Manchester United celebrated a memorable weekend, securing the FA Cup for the first time since Louis van Gaal’s tenure in 2016 by defeating Manchester City 2-1. The win was particularly sweet, as few had expected United to triumph, making the victory all the more gratifying for everyone associated with Old Trafford.

Despite this significant achievement, which has undoubtedly boosted the fans’ morale heading into the summer, Manchester United still faces substantial challenges in the transfer market, particularly due to their eighth-place finish in the league. One key target for United is Michael Olise, a 22-year-old attacker whose signing has already been approved by the club’s hierarchy.

Olise has had an impressive season, scoring 10 goals and providing six assists in just 19 games, despite being hindered by injuries. However, the road to securing his transfer is not straightforward. Although Olise is a lifelong United fan, the club must fend off competition from Newcastle United and Chelsea.

Recent reports indicated that United were leading the race for Olise, who is eager to move to Old Trafford. However, The Mirror has reported that “Chelsea will move for £60 million Michael Olise – regardless of who they make their new manager.” The report also suggests that “Arsenal are set to have the edge as the versatile attacker is keen to play Champions League football… But that will not deter Chelsea who remain hugely impressed by his goals, his assists, and his consistent high level of performance.”

It’s also important to note that Chelsea nearly completed a deal for Olise last summer, which fell apart at the last minute. This history adds another layer of complexity to United’s pursuit.

The Mirror suggests that United’s position in the transfer window has been strengthened by their FA Cup victory, allowing them to offer Europa League football next season. In contrast, Chelsea can only offer the Conference League, and Newcastle has no European football to offer following the weekend’s results.

United is further encouraged by Olise’s fondness for the club. Securing his transfer would be a significant coup, sending shockwaves through the Premier League, as Olise is considered one of the most promising young talents in English football.
