Michael Olise, a winger for Crystal Palace, is not ‘universally backed’ by Manchester United’s leadership.
With the intention of strengthening their forward line, United has made the 22-year-old their top summer target.
After Antony’s dismal campaign, Erik ten Hag’s current favourite on that side is Alejandro Garnacho. The adolescent’s favoured stance is coming from the left, nevertheless.
The Red Devils are starting to run into issues at this position because neither Amad nor Facundo Pellistri have shown they are United material.
The previous several weeks have seen a rise in the Olise talks, and ESPN reports that any trade might include United full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Wan-Bissaka signed a £50 million contract to join United from Palace in 2019 following a run of standout games at Selhurst Park.
Olise declined a move to Chelsea and instead agreed to a new four-year contract with Palace last summer.
As the Eagles prepare for a revamp, it is anticipated that he will be free to depart this summer.
In recent weeks, there has been speculation that the France U21 international, who was formerly signed to Manchester City, may be moving to Liverpool. Even with so many possibilities on the right wing, Chelsea is still interested.
There are others at United who don’t think Olise is the greatest choice. Wilfried Zaha also failed to adjust to a “more demanding” environment at United, and Wan-Bissaka has not lived up to his high price tag.
At United, the summer is anticipated to be quite active. By mid-February, Sir Jim Ratcliffe anticipates that the Premier League will have approved his appointment to oversee the football department of the club.
Late last year, Ratcliffe came to an agreement to purchase a 25% share in the team.
The creator of INEOS was present for Sunday’s 2-2 draw between Tottenham Hotspur and the media.
“Early to mid-Feb,” Ratcliffe said to reporters when they inquired about the ratification of the agreement.
“Hopefully there is nothing suspicious on my resume!
“Since we arrived, this is my first match. I’m thrilled to be here, but I’m not really sure how to respond to queries.
