Pep Guardiola will fight to the end with Erik ten Hag in the race to recruit Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise. Manchester City consider the French talent a big target in the summer and they are ready to make a huge offer.
Meanwhile, Ten Hag also wants Olise to become the flagship of the Sir Jim Ratcliffe era at Manchester United. However, The Premier League champions hope the lure of joining Guardiola’s super squad will help them complete the deal..
Olise – the player who rejected Chelsea at the beginning of the season – possesses skills that fit Man City’s style. He plays on the right wing, where Man City needs a high-class wingman after parting ways with Riyad Mahrez.
Money will not be a problem because Man City will spend 60 million pounds or more for Olise, who had to limp off the field in a 1-4 loss to Brighton, in the summer of 2024.
Olise has scored six goals and provided three assists this season. The 22-year-old player’s contract at Selhurst Park is valid until 2027 and is said to have a release clause in the agreement, but it is unknown how much the specific number is.
