Fresh off their FA Cup victory, where they defeated Manchester City 2-1, United celebrated their first cup win since 2016 under Louis van Gaal. While this victory has lifted the spirits of United’s supporters, their eighth-place league finish underscores the need for significant moves in the transfer market.

Michael Olise has emerged as a prime target for United. Despite being limited to 19 games this season due to injury, Olise scored 10 goals and provided six assists. United’s hierarchy has greenlit the pursuit of Olise, with the club reportedly fully committed to securing his signature.

However, competition for the 22-year-old is intensifying. Newcastle United and Chelsea are also keen on the Frenchman. Initial reports suggested that United were leading the race, bolstered by Olise’s desire to move to Old Trafford.

A recent update from The Mirror reveals that Chelsea is prepared to bid £60 million for Olise, regardless of their managerial situation. Arsenal might also be in the mix, with their Champions League qualification potentially giving them an edge.

United’s cup victory strengthens their negotiating position, offering Europa League football, unlike Chelsea, who can only offer Conference League participation, and Newcastle, who missed out on European qualification altogether. Olise’s childhood support for United could also be a deciding factor.
