Manchester United have reportedly joined Chelsea in the race to sign Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise at the end of the season.

Olise was on the radar of the Blues last summer. The club also triggered the £35 million release clause in his Palace contract.

However, he ended up committing his future to the Eagles with a new contract. This has not stopped the speculation over him.

According to Daily Mail, the Blues are likely to return for Olise during the off-season and may have to pay a much higher fee.

United could compete with the London rivals for the winger, who has been in superb form when fit and available to play this term.

The 22-year-old has registered six goals and three assists for Palace this season from less than 800 minutes of first-team football.

His goal contributions have helped Palace stay clear of the drop zone. He is currently out of action with a hamstring issue until April.
