Michael Olise to Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich is about to finalize Michael Olise's transfer from Crystal Palace. For his physical on Sunday, the French attacker is scheduled to appear in Munich, according to journalists Fabrizio Romano and Bild.

Romano says Bayern is going to give Crystal Palace €53 million straight up and a further €6 million after the player's release option is activated. Additionally, he says that if Bayern Munich ever decides to sell Olise, Crystal Palace will be entitled to a portion of the transfer cost under the terms of the release clause.

Bayern Munich has given Olise permission to represent France at the Olympics, and on Thursday, he participated in half of their 4-1 friendly victory over Paraguay. France Olympics head coach and former Arsenal legend spoke about the value the winger brings to the team. He said, "He is a very important player for us. He can play anywhere, on the wings or in the middle. That gives us a lot of options. He can pass, he can score, he understands space, he knows how to put pressure on us."

Kingsley Coman to be offloaded to accommodate Michael Olise

There have been rumors circulating recently suggesting that Kingsley Coman, a former young player for Paris Saint-Germain, is eager to return. Bayern Munich is also open to the idea of selling him should the right offer present itself.

Kylian Mbappé has moved to Real Madrid, thus PSG will need to find a replacement to take his place in the starting lineup. The French giants appear to be shifting their approach away from relying on just one player to deal with all offensive duties in favor of having other players chip in together to make up for the 25-year-old's departure.

PSG and FC Barcelona are reportedly considering Coman; Christian Falk of Sport Bild reports that the Parisians are interested in Coman. Furthermore, as he desires a fresh challenge and a fresh start in his career, the athlete might be amenable to a transfer this summer.
