Bayern Munich-bound Michael Olise is reportedly set to receive a massive salary boost ahead of his move to the German Giant.

The Crystal Palace star has been the subject of transfer speculation in recent weeks and was linked to a move to Chelsea.

The forward rejected a new contract for his club and Chelsea also pulled out of the race to sign him, leaving Bayern Munich to swoop in.

According to reports, Olise is close to a move to Bundesliga side Bayern Munich after rejecting a new contract from Crystal Palace.

Olise’s proposed salary

Following his stellar 2023–2024 season, the Crystal Palace number 7 became a high demand with Manchester United, Manchester City, and Newcastle United interested in signing him.

However, David Ornstein claims that the France U21 international has decided to join German record-breakers Bayern Munich and that a deal is almost finalised.

After choosing to join Bayern Munich, Olise is expected to receive a significant pay boost, according to Christian Falk, Head of Football Sport Bild.

Falk shared a tweet on X explaining Oliseh’s proposed salary. He claimed that Bayern is in concrete transfer talks with Michael Olise. The player wants Bayern but has a release clause of £55 million and wants a salary expectation of £ 220 000 a week.

The winger is anticipated to receive a salary of £220,000 a week, or £11,440,000 annually (or roughly N21.5 billion in Nigerian currency).

Olise has a £55 million release clause in his new contract that he signed with Palace last summer.
