Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise is reportedly yet to decide which club he will join this summer, despite recent reports suggesting he wants to sign for Manchester United.

Olise, 22, has attracted major transfer interest over the past year and several top Premier League clubs want to sign him this summer.

The Frenchman has enjoyed a productive 2023-24 campaign so far, despite injury issues, with five goals and one assist in nine league games (seven starts).

Chelsea were heavily linked with a move last summer and they even activated Olise’s release clause before he rejected a move to Stamford Bridge and signed a new contract at Crystal Palace.

The Blues eventually signed Cole Palmer instead, but they are still interested in landing Olise, according to Football.London’s Bobby Vincent.

However, the report also states that Olise would favour a move to Man Utd, despite the fact he spent seven years in Chelsea’s Cobham academy.

The Crystal Palace star is reportedly a Red Devils fan, according to Football.London, and is eager to move to Old Trafford amid serious interest from Erik ten Hag’s side.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has poured cold water on reports of Olise moving to Man Utd, however.

He told CaughtOffside: “Despite reports that he would favour a move to Old Trafford there is still nothing decided for Michael Olise, at all. Nothing will be decided now, it’s way too early.

“He’s always in the rumours because there are good chances for him to leave Crystal Palace in the summer and I can definitely see Olise joining a top club. Still, the decision will come later, it’s too early now.”

Olise’s new contract at Crystal Palace runs until 2027, but he is expected to leave Selhurst Park later this year.
