Manchester United Joins Chelsea to Battle for PSG-Linked Forward

Crystal Palace standout Michael Olise is reportedly open to a move to Paris Saint-Germain. With Kylian Mbappé’s imminent departure upon the expiration of his contract in June, PSG is in need of a replacement to maintain their level of production.

However, with the level of interest from Premier League clubs, it doesn’t seem a move to the French capital will be occurring. The Athletic recently wrote that Olise would be an ideal replacement for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.

“Dembele is a dribbler but often lacks end product — Olise would fit their transfer template, but offer a different profile as a player,” the outlet wrote.

Nonetheless, English sides see the 22-year-old’s potential and are also lurking to land the player. According to Football Insider, Arsenal, and Manchester United have joined the race to sign the Crystal Palace winger but face competition from Chelsea, Manchester City, and Juventus.

The forward is under contract until 2027, so it will take a significant sum to lure him away from the Eagles. Transfermarkt puts Olise’s transfer value at €50 million, but a move for the winger might require a bit more since Crystal Palace does hold leverage due to his contract.
