Crystal Palace value Man United targets and attacking duo minimum of £120m combined – report

Eagles set minimum price for star duo
Premier League’s ‘big six’ all linked with either Eze or Olise in recent years

Crystal Palace are prepared to sell star duo Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise, but will only entertain offers starting at £60m, according to a report.

Eze and Olise have cemented their status as two of the Premier League’s best players outside of the traditional ‘big six’ in recent seasons, and have understandably been linked to those clubs as a result.

They both signed new contracts in the second half of 2023 but that has not deterred interested parties from monitoring their progress.

BBC Sport report that the Eagles will listen to any bids that come in for either player this summer, but only if they start at or are in excess of £60m.

Though Palace are no longer in any immediate danger of relegation to the Championship and do not need to sell players to balance the books, there is an acceptance that Eze and Olise will be subject to transfer interest given their form and quality.

Eze and Olise are happy at Palace and are keen to ensure any move away from Selhurst Park is on their terms, prioritising moves which would allow them to continue playing in their charismatic and attacking manners.

According to reports from 90min revealed earlier this week that Olise would be keen to join Manchester United should they decide to firm up their interest with an offer this summer.

Both United’s previous regime and their new INEOS-led one are admirers of the Frenchman.

Chelsea, however, are not expected to make a fresh move for Olise having tried and failed to sign him last year.

The Blues thought they had triggered a complicated release clause in his contract, but this wasn’t the case and they backed away from a deal after being threatened with legal action by Palace.

Olise went on to sign a new long-term deal with a higher but equally complicated release clause.

Eze was tipped to join Manchester City last summer before they moved for Wolves’ Matheus Nunes, and he has also attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur
