Manchester United told to consider “monster” Crystal Palace transfer after Michael Olise



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have been told they must consider signing Crystal Palace’s Joachim Andersen following their interest in Michael Olise.

Manchester United‘s 4-0 loss at the hands of Crystal Palace was not just an eye-opener for fans with respect to lacklustre performances from the squad, but also an INEOS favourite – Michael Olise.

Olise scored twice as the south London team decimated Erik ten Hag‘s squad. The young Frenchman is firmly top of INEOS’ shopping list this summer.

While the 22-year-old was certainly the man of the hour, former United defender Paul Parker has steered the club in a different direction regarding summer transfers.

United need multiple new centre-backs this coming window, and with Raphaël Varane, Jonny Evans, and potentially Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelöf set to depart, it is a priority position for them to fill.

Parker’s Andersen idea

Joachim Andersen, who started for Crystal Palace, was immense at centre-back against Rasmus Højlund, and Parker has explained that United need someone like him in defence.

“Joachim Andersen is spot on,” Parker told Tipsbladet. “Højlund constantly throws himself, and it really doesn’t suit him.

“It must be frustrating for Højlund that his national teammate had such a good handle on him, but Andersen must also be horrible to play against. He really got into Højlund’s head.”

“He loves getting under the opponent’s skin, and he’s damn annoying. I love him, and many more defenders should be like him. A type like him would fit really well into Manchester United. He’s a fantastic player, and he reminds me of Thiago Silva in the way he plays. He’s a monster.”
