Man Utd recruitment team split over Michael Olise interest as 'disagreement' revealed

Man Utd recruitment team split over Michael Olise interest as 'disagreement' revealed

Olise has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United's interest in Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise is not 'universally supported' within the club's hierarchy.

The 22-year-old has emerged as United's top summer target as they aim to bolster their frontline.

Alejandro Garnacho is currently Erik ten Hag's preferred option on that side following Antony's disappointing campaign. However, the teenager's preferred position is coming off the left.

Amad and Facundo Pellistri are yet to prove they're United quality, meaning it's becoming a problem position for the Red Devils.

Discussions over Olise have intensified over the last few weeks and according to ESPN, United full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka could be used as part of any deal.

Wan-Bissaka joined United from Palace in a £50 million deal in 2019 after a string of impressive performances at Selhurst Park.

Olise signed a new four-year contract with Palace last summer, turning down a transfer to Chelsea.

He's expected to be allowed to leave this summer as the Eagles plan an overhaul.

The France U21 international, once on the books of Manchester City, has been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent weeks. Chelsea remain interested too, despite their wealth of options on the right wing.

Some at United don't believe Olise is the best option. Wan-Bissaka has failed to live up to his price tag and Wilfried Zaha also failed at transitioning to a 'more demanding' environment at United.

It's expected to be a busy summer at United. Sir Jim Ratcliffe expects the Premier League to ratify his move to take charge of the club's footballing operations by mid-February.

Ratcliffe agreed a deal to take a 25 per cent stake in the club late last year.

The INEOS founder attended Sunday's 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur and spoke to the media.

"Early to mid-Feb," Ratcliffe told reporters when asked about the deal being ratified.

"Hopefully we don't find anything dodgy on my CV!

"This is the first match for me since we got here. I am very excited to be here, but I can't answer any questions really."
