Manchester United transfer target told to include ‘special clause’ in his contract



| Last Updated:


Michael Olise has been told he should include a “special clause” in his Manchester United contract should he sign for the Old Trafford club.

Under the new guise of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, INEOS have assumed all sporting responsibilities of Manchester United, which of course, includes player and transfer recruitment.

Under Erik ten Hag, the club have at times been accused of being wasteful and inefficient with their transfers, with the £85 million move for Antony being used as a prime example of this.

Ratcliffe and co have identified Michael Olise as a top target for the summer window after the side has suffered some heavy creative problems in attack – although the player has been warned by former United defender Paul Parker that he should put a special clause into his contract.

There have been many examples over the last few years of players failing to live up to expectations after signing for United, with Paul Pogba and Jadon Sancho examples of this.

Parker, in an interview with SpilXperten, has explained that Olise should enter a clause into any contract with United that stipulates that he can leave the club if needed rather than become “stuck in the rocks” at Old Trafford.

“He would definitely improve Man United, but if he has a good enough agent who worries about him, he would ask the club a lot of questions before such a move,” Parker said.

“He would force some things to be written in the contract, maybe even things that have never been written in a contract before. He would want insurance to make sure his player wouldn´t get stuck in the rocks, which many players have experienced at Man United.

“He would make sure that he had the opportunity to leave the club at any point. The agent has to make sure there is a good path for him, and I’m not sure he would get that at Man United.”

Continuing, he raved about Olise’s talent, claiming he could play “for any team in the world”.

“I see Michael Olise as a target for any club in the world that wants to win titles. He can play for any team in the world.

“He is so good on that right-hand side, and he can beat people, even without an extreme pace. I can’t remember having seen anything like that since Chris Waddle.

“But would I want him at Man United? 100 per cent. He is a top, top player.”
