Michael Olise targeted by Manchester United for the next summer transfer

Manchester United

Manchester United could line up £60m worth Michael Olise, who’s an “enormous” upgrade on Antony.

The Manchester United target, Michael Olise has six more goals than Antony in the league this season. Manchester United’s attack over the last few years has been extremely unbalanced in terms of quality and output.

The left has been occupied mainly by Marcus Rashford. However, despite being heavily criticized recently, has always scored goals. However, the right-wing role has often been vacated. Last summer, Ten Hag looked to have finally solved that issue when signing Antony from Ajax.

Obviously, the Brazilian hasn’t quite reached the heights expected. Therefore, Ratcliffe will once again attempt to finally find a long-term suitor to the right of the frontline.

Man United are desperate for a new right winger

According to a report from ESPN, via Football365, Man United are interested in signing Michael Olise from Crystal Palace. The French winger is currently the favourite to replace Antony this summer.

It’s reported that Olise would rather join the Red Devils over Liverpool. This has already made him a fan favourite at Old Trafford. That said, for United to get their hands on the winger, they’ll have to pay his £60m release clause.

Michael Olise could be a huge upgrade on Antony

It’s a well-known fact that Antony has underperformed heavily this season. He has been lacking confidence and struggling to impact the game whatsoever. To sum up his campaign briefly, Antony has zero goals and just one assist in 25 Premier League matches. This stat is simply not good enough for a player who cost a staggering £82m.

On the other hand, when Olise is on the field, Palace are a completely different side that look far more dangerous in the final third. The 22-year-old forward is the definition of a game-changer. Moreover, his statistics from this season speak for themselves. He’s scored six goals and provided three assists in just nine starts. (via Sofascore)

The fact that Olise can perform to these standards in a relatively average Palace side is admirable. However, just imagine what he could do alongside the likes of Bruno Fernandes. Output is without a doubt the most important aspect of football for an attacker. It’s clear that Olise can not only find the back of the net but also act as a source of creativity.

statistics. Olise’s fouls won statistic being much higher than Antony’s highlights how much difficult it is for defenders to play against each winger. Olise is far more dangerous than Antony and he would be a huge upgrade. It’s also not a surprise that his former boss Roy Hodgson labelled him an “enormous talent.”

United wouldn’t just be buying Olise for his current quality but also for the potential he has yet to reach. More importantly, there aren’t many better players on the market for £60m.
