Liverpool tipped to sign Michael Olise after Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba comparison


Crystal Palace’s rising star and Euro 2024 prospect, Michael Olise, is drawing interest from Manchester United, backed by new part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe. However, Liverpool is now being tipped to make a move, with assurances that Olise would be welcomed in the Anfield dressing room, unlike if he were to join arch-rivals Manchester United.

Amidst speculation, Olise, 22, is not only a target for United but is also receiving attention from Tottenham, while Chelsea had an unsuccessful bid last August, leading Palace to secure him with a new four-year contract. The agreement includes a release clause of approximately £60 million, set to be activated this summer. United is eyeing Olise’s availability, with Palace considering a deal involving the re-signing of right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Liverpool may enter the fray, especially if Jurgen Klopp heeds the advice of former Reds midfielder Jan Molby. Molby expressed his positive stance, stating that Olise’s talent could fit within Liverpool’s transfer budget. Despite rumors about Olise’s past attitude issues during his time in Arsenal, Manchester City, and Chelsea academies, Molby is confident that the 22-year-old would not pose significant problems under Klopp’s management, given the leadership of Liverpool’s senior players.
