Exclusive: Man United explore triple raid after secret talks in London

Football Insider has been informed by sources that Sir Alex Fergsuon, the director of Man United, met with Dougie Freedman in London to discuss Crystal Palace’s stance on selling Marc Guehi, Eberechi Eze, and Michael Olise this summer.

Former manager Ferguson is functioning as a director and club ambassador for United, and he is in Mayfair having exclusive talks regarding the availability of the south London club’s players with its director of football.

United is planning a triple raid on the Palace stars. The Premier League’s biggest teams are reportedly considering signing Guehi, 23, as a center-back, while they also see Eze, 25, and Olise, 22, as viable alternatives as they attempt to bolster their attack this summer.

Reports have suggested United are now willing to sell the majority of their first-team players once the transfer window as Sir Jim Ratcliffe looks to overhaul the squad.

Guehi’s deal at Selhurst Park is due to expire in 2026, with Eze and Olise under contract until 2027.

Man United could sign three Crystal Palace players this summer

A number of elite teams have expressed interest in the trio in recent months as a result of their outstanding performances for Palace.

Throughout the campaign, Eze and Olise stood out as they combined for 33 goal contributions. Last month, Football Insider reported that the Eagles are reportedly seeking a sum of money around to £70 million to entice Eze to leave south London.

Olise’s release clause is also reportedly valued at roughly £70 million. Following Ferguson’s meeting with Freedman to discuss the likelihood of them moving to Old Trafford this summer, Man United has now expressed interest in the three players.

It’s still unknown whether Erik ten Hag will be the man in charge of the Red Devils next season as the club’s hierarchy are currently conducting a full season review ahead of deciding on his future.
