Bayern Munich overcome final hurdle in Olise transfer

Bayern Munich are due to announce the arrival of Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise imminently, according to The South London Press.

Bayern Munich will reportedly pay €60m (£50.7m) including add-ons to bring the 22-year-old to the Allianz Arena.

Transfer fees and the player contract have been agreed.

Olise is expected to sign a contract until 2027 and only agent fees remain unresolved.

Olise joined from Reading in 2021 in an £8 million deal.

He made 90 appearances for the South Londoners in three seasons and scored 16 times.

Olise told Crystal Palace management of his decision to join the six-time Champions League winners on June 21.

Olise is due to play for France U23 in the Olympic Games and he will not be returning to Selhurst Park.

The 22-year-old wanted to play Champions League football and turned down Premier League rivals, Chelsea and Newcastle United.

There was further interest from Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool but the French attacker will be moving to Germany after the Olympics.

The football tournament at the 2024 Summer Olympics will be held from 24 July to 10 August.

If France are knocked out early, Olise’s first game for Bayern Munich could be against familiar foes, Tottenham on August 3rd or 10th in Seoul.

However, it is more likely that Olise may make his first appearance against 3. Liga side, Ulm in the DFB Pokal a week later, before the start of Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga campaign.
