Manchester United’s decision to buy out… Ratcliffe’s owner system ‘first recruitment’

January 4, 2024 | by

Manchester United plans to launch a recruitment campaign to reinforce its offense. The target of recruitment is Michael Ollis of Crystal Palace. Manchester United is expected to move to recruit Ollis this summer as Sir Jim Ratcliffe (71, England), who recently became the owner of the team after acquiring a stake, has announced a full-fledged reshuffle of the team.

Multiple media outlets, including the British Evening Standard, reported on the 3rd (Korea time), “Manchester United is very interested in recruiting Olis and wants to make him the first recruiter of Ratcliffe’s owner’s era.” Sir Ratcliffe, the founder of the global chemical group Ineos, was recently entrusted with all responsibility for managing football operations as he became a co-owner when he acquired a 25% stake in Manchester United.

According to reports, Manchester United inserted a buyout clause (minimum amount allowed for transfer) when Olis signed a four-year contract with Palace in August, which he intends to recruit by invoking it. The buyout was not disclosed in detail through the media, but it is expected to be more than 35 million pounds (about 58 billion won) considering Olis’ previous buyout.

However, Manchester United is not expected to move to recruit Olis during this winter’s transfer market. This is because the buyout clause can be invoked from the summer with Olis signing a new contract less than a year ago and Palace not considering selling it at all. Manchester United plans to continue to observe Olis and start recruiting him in earnest as soon as this season ends. 헤라카지노주소

The Evening Standard said, “With Sir Ratcliffe taking a 25 percent stake in Manchester United, he has taken full responsibility for the management of football operations, and plans to make a major shake-up, such as reviewing his transfer strategy,” adding, “Manchester United will likely move to recruit Olis as the team is reorganized under Sir Ratcliffe’s leadership. Olis will be able to revitalize Manchester United’s attack.”

Olis made his professional debut in Reading in 2019 after growing up in youth such as Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City. Since then, he has stood out as his potential has gradually been in full bloom, and he has been active since moving to Palace in 2021. Olis has good ball handling skills and is a left-footed side striker who can move forward with the ball. In particular, he is said to have excellent forward passes.

In fact, Ollis had two goals and five assists in 31 matches (16 starts) in his first season at the Palace, and in 40 official matches (33 starts), he had two goals and 11 assists. This season, he has also had five goals and one assist in nine matches since his return in November last year after failing to play for a while due to a hamstring injury.
