Chelsea plan to close deal with Crystal Palace for the signing of Michael Olise

As Chelsea looks to sign the Crystal Palace player, it has apparently grown confident that they will not run into a problem with Michael Olise’s release clause. Chelsea and Palace communicated on Thursday about the possibility of a deal for the highly-regarded English player, who is capable of playing as an offensive midfielder or right winger.

The Telegraph claims that only Champions League teams may activate Olise’s £60 million release clause. Despite this, Chelsea is optimistic that they won’t have to pay more for Olise than a Champions League team in order to complete a deal. Chelsea further believes that since this information has never been confirmed, they won’t be forced to pay a premium for the 22-year-old if they are unable to advance to the Champions League.

The same source claims that Chelsea is willing to include marginal players in any trade for Olise. Chelsea may use players like Trevoh Chalobah and Armando Broja as makeweights in the trade. Although Chelsea is optimistic that they may land their long-term objective, Olise is also being pursued by teams like Bayern Munich and Newcastle.

Noni Madueke is another player about whom Palace may inquire, though it’s unclear if Chelsea would be willing to allow his departure. It’s crucial to remember that Chelsea is still the front-runner to sign Olise despite fresh talks with Palace amidst confusion about his release clause.
