Michael Olise targeted by Manchester United to bolster attack

Manchester United

Manchester United is keen on securing Crystal Palace sensation Michael Olise, but the 22 year old winger seems to favor a move to his childhood favorite, Arsenal. The Red Devils, under the direction of new decision maker Sir Jim Ratcliffe, are looking to strengthen their squad significantly. However, Ineos’ involvement in United’s transfer decisions means they can’t act without consulting the British billionaire.

Struggling in the Premier League, currently sitting eighth due to multiple losses, Manchester United faces a lack of unity and consistency within their team. They’ve faltered both in attack and defense, displaying disjointed play and individualistic tendencies. Senior players like Antony Martial and Marcus Rashford have notably underperformed, contributing few goals and lacking the drive in matches.

Erik ten Hag, United’s manager, brought in Rasmus Hojlund in the last transfer window to bolster their goal-scoring options. Despite receiving praise for his overall game, the 20 year old has managed only one goal in the Premier League and lacks the support needed for his attacking prowess.

Michael Olise’s potential impact on Manchester United’s attack

United targets Michael Olise to fortify their attacking force and assist Rasmus Hojlund with his creativity. Known for technical ability, pace, and dribbling skills, the France U21 player possesses the flair to trouble any defender. He adds unpredictability to the wing, capable of cutting inside or going down the flank to create opportunities. With prior Premier League experience and adaptability across positions, Michael Olise could be the ideal addition United needs.

Despite Chelsea’s interest, Crystal Palace held onto Michael Olise during the last transfer window. However, United, given their stature, could still sway the player despite his preference for Arsenal. Acquiring Olise might be the much-needed injection of talent and dynamism for United’s struggling attacking line-up.
