Former Manchester United star tells Manchester United told to beat Chelsea to the signing of £60m attacker

Former Manchester United defender, Mikael Silvestre, has urged Manchester United to beat Chelsea to the signing of Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise.

Chelsea were keen on signing the 22-year-old last summer, and even triggered his £35 million release clause.

The young winger turned down a move to Chelsea, and rather chose to sign a new deal with Palace.

He now has a release clause of £60m in his current deal, and Silvestre has told United to beat Chelsea to the signing of the winger.

“He [Olise] has the potential to play for United. He’s been improving a lot since his days at Reading,” Silvestre told Betting Expert.

“He plays for the France Under-21s and I think he will progress into the national team as soon as he jumps to a Champions League club.

“He should be on the United target list but I’m not sure he’s targeting a move to United.

“He would bring quality, speed and he’s a good all round player who’s direct. He likes to take on players.

“He needs to work on his end product whether that’s the service or scoring goals.”

Olise has made just 10 Premier League appearances this season due to hamstring problems but has still been able to contribute massively. He is Palace’s standout man, with six goals and three assists.
