Keep an eye on Liverpool and Man U... Michael Olise may leave Crystal Palace this summer Transfers

Born in London in 2001, 22-year-old winger Michael Olise made the move to Crystal Palace in the summer of 2021 after a number of strong clubs had been battling for him even during his time at Reading.

He has scored 11 goals and provided 20 assists in 80 games for the club, and he continues to gain recognition in England.

He continues to create chances from the right wing with his accurate left-footed crosses and passes, and his calm touch in front of the goal allows him to calmly aim shots at goal.

Chelsea tried to acquire one of the Premier League’s best wingers last summer, but he eventually agreed to a contract extension with Crystal Palace.

Still, things could get moving in this summer’s transfer market. According to Ben Jacobs, sports journalist, while noting the reasons for the contract renewal, Liverpool and Manchester United should keep an eye on the situation.

“I don’t see anyone succeeding (or even necessarily trying) in signing Michael Olise this window, but there could well be a battle for his signature over the summer when a release clause, in his new contract, kicks in.”

“The clause is higher than his old and complicated £35m one which Chelsea tried to trigger over the summer only to see Olise pen a new contract.”

“It’s too early to say if Chelsea will return, but I would keep an eye on Liverpool and Manchester United. Olise is having a superb season so far and a summer exit from Palace could be a real possibility because he wants to play European football.”

“The extension at Palace wasn’t necessarily signed to stay long term so much as protect all parties, and raise the release clause because the previous one was set at a bit of a bargain.”
