Bayern Munich finalized the signing of French winger Michael Olise from Crystal Palace this Saturday. According to Sky Sports in England, the Germans will pay 60 million euros for the winger, including bonuses.

The 22-year-old Frenchman was highly sought after by top-tier European clubs. English media reported last week that the player had offers from Chelsea and Newcastle, in addition to Bayern, whom Olise chose to join. The decision to move to Bayern is seen as a significant step in Olise's career, providing him with the opportunity to play in one of Europe's top leagues and compete for major titles.

The player came very close to joining Chelsea last season but chose to renew his contract with Crystal Palace until 2027. This decision demonstrated his loyalty to the club and his belief in their project. However, the allure of joining Bayern Munich and playing under a renowned club was ultimately irresistible. With Bayern, he is expected to sign a five-year deal, solidifying his future with the Bavarian giants.

Olise, who spent time in the youth academies of Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City, had been with Crystal Palace since 2021. His development at these prestigious academies laid a strong foundation for his professional career, and his time at Crystal Palace allowed him to showcase his talent on a larger stage.

Despite facing constant injuries, the athlete had a standout season in 2023/24. With ten goals and six assists in 19 matches for Crystal Palace, Olise proved to be an essential piece in the London team's surge in the second half of the English Premier League. His contributions were crucial in helping the team move from fighting relegation to finishing the season in tenth place. His performance did not go unnoticed, earning him recognition as one of the league's rising stars.

Olise's transfer to Bayern Munich is expected to bolster the team's attacking options, providing them with a versatile and dynamic player capable of making an immediate impact. Bayern's investment in Olise reflects their confidence in his potential to become a key player for the team in the coming years. Fans and analysts alike will be watching closely to see how Olise adapts to the Bundesliga and contributes to Bayern's pursuit of domestic and international success.
