Fans left surprised after learning how much Michael Olise will earn at Bayern Munich

French youngster Michael Olise has completed a high-profile transfer to Bayern Munich from Crystal Palace for a reported £60 million fee, triggering his release clause. The 22-year-old midfielder signs a five-year contract, becoming the second senior signing under new manager Vincent Kompany, following Hiroki Ito.

Olise's impressive form at Palace, particularly his 10 goals in the last Premier League season, attracted significant interest. Last summer, Chelsea attempted to activate his then-£35 million release clause, but Olise opted to stay at Palace, securing a new contract with a significantly higher buyout option.

The move to Bayern sees Olise's salary doubled, with the Daily Mirror reporting a staggering £220,000 per week. While this figure surprised fans, Olise remains within the mid-range compared to his new teammates.

Bayern's highest earner is reportedly England captain Harry Kane, earning over £400,000 weekly. Olise joins a list of eight other Bayern players on higher wages, including established stars like Joshua Kimmich, Thomas Muller, and Manchester United target Matthijs de Ligt.

This transfer could have wider implications. With Ito potentially replacing de Ligt in defense, Bayern might be actively seeking a central defender. Sky Germany reports that Bayer Leverkusen's Jonathan Tah, in the final year of his contract, is a possible target.

Olise's arrival signifies Bayern's ambition under Kompany. He brings proven talent and a long-term commitment, while his salary structure suggests a strategic approach to the wage bill. The coming season will be interesting to see how Olise integrates into the Bayern squad and how his signing impacts their transfer strategy.
