Michael Olise tipped for ‘Cole Palmer-type’ impact at Manchester United after release clause update



| Last Updated:


Michael Olise has been tipped to have a Cole Palmer-type impact on Manchester United following a new update on his Crystal Palace release clause.

Reports from earlier this year have continually put Michael Olise at the top of Sir Jim Ratcliffe‘s summer transfer wishlist following sublime performances in the Premier League.

While some may have been sceptical of signing the Crystal Palace forward, Monday night saw the 22-year-old Frenchman score twice in a 4-0 riot over Erik ten Hag‘s men, proving his ability beyond doubt.

Olise is set to be subject to intense levels of interest from both Europe and those in the Premier League, with INEOS seemingly setting their sights on securing the forward as a marquee player this summer.

With the transfer in mind, Olise has been tipped to have a similar impact at Old Trafford as Cole Palmer has had at Chelsea this season.

Olise’s United impact

Former England goalkeeper and now BBC Sport pundit Paul Robinson, speaking on the potential transfer, has explained how he feels Olise would fare at Old Trafford, insisting that he would have a similar impact at United as Palmer has had.

“Without a doubt, I can see him fit in,” Robinson said to BBC Radio Five Live on Friday night.

“He would go straight into the Manchester United team, the way that Cole Palmer has left and gone to Chelsea, somebody like that would go straight into a Manchester United side. For him, if he is to go, he has to go somewhere, and he has to play.”

The release clause

Interestingly, Olise is one of the few players in the Premier League whose contract contains a release clause.

Signing a new deal in 2023, It was thought that his contract’s clause is at a figure of around £60 million, although a new report has explained that it could be less than this.

A report from the Daily Mail on Friday has stated that “while complicated and with various stipulations”, Olise’s release clause “is not as high as £60 million”.

This is fantastic news for INEOS and United, who are looking to save as much money as possible this summer, considering profit and sustainability restrictions.
