Manchester United are seriously looking to lure Michael Olise in a swap deal involving Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Earlier this month, we covered a story (via The Star) claiming that United want to send the defender back to the Eagles in order to lure the French attacker, who has a clause of £60million in his conract.
A similar transfer report has now been exclusively covered by journalist, Mark Ogden, for ESPN today.
The reporter has revealed that Man Utd have already advanced with talks to sign the 22-year-old from the Selhurst Park outfit.
Liverpool and Chelsea are also interested in the former Reading winger and to beat the Premier League duo to the signing of Olise, Man Utd are ready to agree a deal to sell Wan-Bissaka back to Palace.
It is stated that the Eagles could be tempted to re-sign the defender, who proved to be a hit during his time with the club.
Ogden claims the poor form of Antony, who scored only a single goal in the PL last year, and the top form of Olise has made him one of the leading attacking targets at Old Trafford.
The London born player has directly contributed in 6 goals in the Premier League this season in just 7 starts so far.
However, he missed the first few months of the campaign due to a hamstring injury and is currently out again with yet another hamstring concern.
Have your say – Should Man Utd agree a deal to sign Olise knowing that Zaha and Wan-Bissaka failed to shine at Man Utd after joining from Crystal Palace?
