Olise Joins Bayern From Palace On Five-Year Deal

Crystal Palace player, Michael Olise has joined Bayern Munich on a five-year deal for a fee in the region of 60m euros (£50.7m). 

Olise, 22, is an English-born France Under-21 forward made 90 appearances in all competitions over three seasons with Palace.

The talented winger started his career with the Eagles from Reading for £8m in July 2021.

Prior to this development, some clubs indicated interest in signing Olise. Earlier this summer, Chelsea and Newcastle United registered their interest in Olise but the winger has chosen to move to Germany, where he will work under Bayern’s new manager Vincent Kompany.

Commenting on his new move, Olise said, “I’m very happy to now be playing for such a big club – it’s a great challenge and that’s exactly what I was looking for,”

“I want to prove myself at this level and play my part in ensuring we win as many titles as possible in the coming years.”

On his feat, Olise scored 10 goals in 19 Premier League appearances as Palace finished 10th in the table last season and has been selected in the France squad for the Olympics that start in Paris later this month.

“We are hugely proud of what Michael has achieved at Crystal Palace, a club where he has developed greatly as a player,” said Eagles chairman Steve Parish.

“We respect his desire to further test himself at the highest level of world football.”

Fulham’s Joao Palhinha is also set to join Bayern, in a deal worth £42m plus £4m in add-ons.

Last season, Bayer Leverkusen ended Bayern’s 11-year hold on the German title.
