The Lowdown: Olise’s first season at Palace
The French youngster was Patrick Vieira’s first signing at Selhurst Park last July, joining from Reading in a deal worth £8m.
How many signings do Palace need this summer?
He also weighed in with two goals and three assists in Palace’s run to the FA Cup semi-finals, and it looks as though his displays have caught the eye at Old Trafford.
The Latest: Olise could be available for £35m
Stretty News shared a story regarding the Red Devils and Olise on Saturday afternoon.
They were informed by ‘a source close to the situation’ who claimed that the Palace starlet will be available for £35m this summer, a possible 400% profit for Steve Parish on the midfielder after less than 12 months with the Eagles.
The Verdict: Strange to sell…
There is previous between the two clubs when it comes to signing young talents, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka making a £50m move from south London to Old Trafford in 2019.
However, it seems bizarre that Palace would be willing to sell Olise for £35m this summer. No Palace player has provided more assists than the Frenchman this season, as per WhoScored, so surely he’s someone around whom Vieira would want to build a team going forward.
It could be one to keep a close eye upon over the coming months, although another impressive campaign at Selhurst Park would more than likely see Olise’s valuation rise even further and could see transfer interest become even more intense.
