Man United target Michael Olise "not guaranteed" to leave says Ornstein

There has been a lot of talk around the future of Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise ahead of the summer transfer window and The Athletic’s David Ornstein says the winger is “not guaranteed” to leave Selhurst Park. 

The 22-year-old has been in great form in recent weeks scoring four goals and assisting a further two across his last five games. That has taken his total for the season to 10 goals and five assists across 18 matches, which is impressive considering the winger’s season has been plagued by injury issues.

However, the reliable journalist states that a potential deal is complicated and that the 22-year-old is not guaranteed to leave the Eagles this summer.

“Olise is said to be the type of person to think these decisions through very carefully and will not depart unless it is right for both him and Palace. It has been well documented there is a release clause, which it is believed could facilitate his exit for a fee in the region of £60m, however from everything we hear it is a complicated mechanism and not as straight forward as: pay the fee and get him.”

Olise would be a top signing for Man United this summer, especially with Jadon Sancho expected to leave Old Trafford, and amid the poor form of players such as Marcus Rashford and Antony.
