It’s almost a week Sir Jim Ratcliffe takes over the 25% stake of the club. Now like other club owners, he also need to sign a big name to surprise United fans.

Currently he is targeting Crystal Palace midfielder Michael Olise. Although he was almost joined Chelsea in last summer.

Even Blues were so desperate as they could pay his release clause to bring him Stamford Bridge.

Nevertheless, the deal was thwarted when Crystal Palace raised concerns about Chelsea’s strategy.

In the end, the 22-year-old signed a new deal, and it’s said that this time around, his release clause is significantly larger than it was during the summer.

Jim Ratcliffe wants Michael Olise

Cole Palmer was then signed by Chelsea to fill that position. And he has already shown himself to be among the best additions of the season. Also not only at Stamford Bridge, but throughout the league.

This season, he has already scored eight goals, which is just one less than Olise had totaled throughout his Premier League career.

Although we need to discuss the topic on the basis of progressive pass, drilling and many other aspects.

So far, Palmer is averaging 6.92 progressive passes and 4.87 final third passes per 90 minutes in the league this season (stats from fbref).

On the other hand, Olise has 6.3 – Most progressive passes per 90 minutes in the Premier League this season.
