Contract extention at Palace might hold back Olise in joining Stamford Bridge

Some players arrive at certain clubs as a blessing in disguise. Michael Olise of Crystal Palace is in a similar situation, with his talent getting attention around the world. The frenzy around him is real, and Chelsea and Liverpool are keeping him as their top target. As Salah’s replacement, the 22-year-old seems fit to run through the wings. He is someone who has immense potential, and both new managers, Arne Slot and Enzo Maresca, could benefit from the player. It is, however, a big question about Olise’s departure from Crystal Palace. There are several reports of contract renewals for the starlet in Selhurst Park. It is clear that the ball is in Olise’s court, who is juggling several crucial decisions in his career. Crystal Palace might be a midtable club, but it is one of the most consistent clubs in the Premier League. 

Crystal Palace for Chelsea a big doubt: Olise with new hefty contract renewal

With Zaha leaving Palace behind for Turkey, Eze and Olise have big shoes to fill in Palace as well as in the Premier League. The u21 Frenchman is already showing several promising ideas for why he is suitable for Crystal Palace. Despite being injured for a while in the 23/24 season, Olise delivered for Crystal Palace 16 times. A staggering 16 goal contribution in just 19 appearances speaks a lot for the player trying to keep a club together. Other players like Kerkez of Bournemouth and Eze are also on the radar of the Blues. However, these players are so important and instrumental for their respective clubs that their managers are not willing to let them go.

Whether leaving Selhurst Park and joining Chelsea is a good decision is something only time can tell. In all honesty, both clubs have performed mediocrely in recent times. With Cole Palmer being the main focus of the Chelsea board, fans, and media, it is likely to lose a stardom at Stamford Bridge. Moreover, Chelsea has an overloaded squad, which is often competitive. An immiediate join might hamper the growth that Olise is having at Crystal Palace. However, with the rich history that Chelsea offers, a move might not sound bad, at least on paper.
