Bayern Munich transfer target Michael Oliseh (Crystal Palace) plans to attend the Olympics in France.

Under new coach Vincent Kompany, the Bavarians are looking to bolster their defense. Having signed Hiroki Ito, the Bavarians are also in talks to bring in Jonathan Tah (Leverkusen). Naturally, Matejas de Ligt is up for sale.

At the same time, they are also looking for a flanker and have virtually finalized the signing of Oliseh. The Frenchman has great pace and dribbling skills on the flank, but he also has a sharp left-footed shot and accurate passing.

Oliseh came through the youth ranks at Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City before making his first-team debut for Reading. He finally broke into the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2021-22 season with a move to Palace. Oliseh earned a regular spot in the starting lineup last season with two goals and 11 assists in 37 appearances, and this season has been a career-high with 10 goals and six assists in the league.

Initially, Oliseh was the subject of interest from Premier League teams. Manchester United, Chelsea, and others wanted him, but Munich entered the race and quickly signed him. The contract runs until 2029, and the transfer fee is expected to be around 60 million euros ($89 billion).

However, the lack of official word has led to 19사이트 speculation of a hijack. “United have not given up on Oliseh and are preparing a hijack,” Germany’s Sky Sports reported. However, a move to Munich is still the favorite. Florian Plettenberg, a journalist who focuses on Munich news, said: “Oliseh’s move to Munich is not in danger. The Bavarians want to finalize the deal as soon as possible.”

With only details remaining in negotiations between the clubs, it has been confirmed that Oliseh will compete at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, which begin on June 26.

Plettenberg said: “Oliseh wants to play for France at the Olympics. Munich have been informed and will accept the request. It is not yet confirmed. France’s first game is on the 24th. Oliseh will therefore miss the tour of South Korea, which starts on the 31st.” Munich will play Tottenham in South Korea next month on March 3 in a pre-season match of the ‘Coupang Play Series’.
