Man Utd transfer news: Michael Olise and Jarrard Branthwaite made priority transfer targets by Ineos

Olise and Branthwaite

Micahel Olise and Jarrad Branthwaite are high on Ineos’ list of transfer targets this summer window as Manchester United prepare for an overhaul, FootballTransfers has been told.

The Crystal Palace star is open to an Old Trafford switch and personal terms are not expected to be a problem. We understand that the winger has a release clause of around £60m in his deal which any club can activate.

The performances of Antony this year – as well as the likelihood that Erik ten Hag will be let go in the summer – mean that the club are on the lookout for an attacker on the right-wing with who start in the first XI.

There is still uncertainty about Jadon Sancho and his future, especially with Ten Hag’s probable departure, but Ineos do not wish to leave it to chance. As reported previously, Marcus Edwards of Sporting CP is another option for Man Utd and the club valuing him at around £35m.

Olise has admirers at Chelsea and Liverpool but it’s a move to Man Utd that he’s the most receptive to, with Ineos looking to inject significant funds into the club’s transfer kitty.

How much will Jarrad Branthwaite cost?

Meanwhile, Everton’s financial woes mean that they may have to sell some of their biggest assets, regardless of whether they remain in the Premier League or not. Branthwaite has been a target for Man Utd for a considerable period – FootballTransfers reported their initial interest back in August – while there are those among Ineos who also believe that he would make an ideal signing for the new hierarchy.

There is an expectancy that Branthwaite will become one of England’s starting men in the coming years, while he has already proved himself to be one of the top-performing defenders playing in the Premier League today. Around £75m should see a deal complete but the 21-year-old will not be short of suitors.
