Michael Olise is among the big priorities for Man United this summer, as the transfer window looms.

Manchester United have had very little production from the right-wing this season. Amad has looked good over the last couple of games, while Alejandro Garnacho had a decent little spell out there earlier in the season. That’s about it.

The Red Devils need to find some consistency in that area of the pitch, though I don’t think it’s going to come from Antony. Hence, a signing may well be made.

Michael Olise has been heavily linked with filling that void recently. It makes sense given the form of the Crystal Palace man since he returned from injury.

Now, CaughtOffside have provided an update on that front, claiming United have made the 22-year-old attacker a ‘priority’ signing this summer.

Apparently, Olise has a release clause set at just £35m, which seems super low for a man of his talent and ability. I’d be surprised if this figure is anywhere close to accurate, but what a bargain it’d be.

INEOS are said to appreciate his ‘technical’ and ‘tactical’ skills, which they would have seen first-hand during Palace’s 4-0 win over the Red Devils not too long ago.

Olise has been super impressive ever since breaking into the Palace first team a couple of years ago, forming a brilliant partnership with Eberechi Eze and the rest of the Palace attack. There are some question marks around his fitness and injury issues, but if the £35m fee is accurate, then it’s absolutely worth the gamble.

United may find it tough to beat out competition for his signature due to the lack of Champions League football on the table.
