Manchester City and Chelsea target Michael Olise is available for $44m this summer after it was confirmed the winger had a release clause in his contract at Crystal Palace.
The 21-year-old wide star has impressed in both of his Premier League campaigns for the Eagles since joining from Reading in 2021. Olise scored a famous equalizing free-kick in the last minute to earn his side a point against Manchester United back in January and became the first Palace player to ever register 10 Premier League assists in a single season last term.
Michael Olise set for big money move?
According to Fabrizio Romano, both City and Chelsea are monitoring Olise closely with the two clubs set to make a decision on a move once they find out the extent of a hamstring injury the wing-wizard suffered whilst on international duty for the France under-21’s last month.
