Sources: Manchester United respond to Chelsea’s Michael Olise approach with fresh Mason Greenwood development



| Last Updated:


Manchester United are planning to make a move for Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise after the winger was approached by Premier League rivals Chelsea.

According to various reports, Chelsea has contacted Crystal Palace about the possibility of signing United target Michael Olise.

The Athletic have detailed that the south-west London club asked for permission on Thursday afternoon to speak to the winger’s representatives with the hope of agreeing personal terms, alongside Newcastle and Bayern Munich.

Olise’s release clause in his deal at Selhurst Park is believed to be around £60 million, and it has been claimed that Chelsea are prepared to meet that figure.

UtdDistrict understands that The Reds are planning to make their move for Olise. The club does not want to miss out on signing the Crystal Palace winger, although the finances involved in a potential deal are complicated as things stand.

Olise has been a clear target for the club, but there has always been a belief that United would need to offload some of their attacking options in order to move forward with an approach for the 22-year-old.

Sources have since explained that recent developments regarding Mason Greenwood’s situation have accelerated United’s ability to make this move.

Greenwood, 22, has been heavily linked with a permanent transfer this summer, and the latest reports suggest that a move to Juventus could be around the corner.

As UtdDistrict revealed previously, the club are focused on signing players in centre-back and striker positions, but there have always been admirers for Olise at Old Trafford.
