MICAHEL Olise said he wanted to test himself at the highest level after joining Bayern Munich on a five-year deal for £60million.

“The talks with FC Bayern were very positive, and I’m very happy to now be playing for such a big club,” Olise said on Bayern’s website. “It’s a great challenge, and that’s exactly what I was looking for. 

“I want to prove myself at this level and play my part in ensuring that we win as many titles as possible with our team in the coming years.”

Max Eberl, Bayern board member for sport, added: “Michael Olise is a player who can make the difference and attracted great interest with his style of play. We want new impetus in our team, new energy, new ideas – that’s what players like Michael Olise stand for. 

“During the talks, he quickly signalled that he really wanted to join FC Bayern. We’re very much looking forward to him. He will enrich our game.”

Christoph Freund, FC Bayern sporting director, said: “Michael is quick, tricky, a goal threat and very versatile in attack. His goals and assists stats are already outstanding. At the age of 22, Michael is already very advanced, but is also hungry and still has a lot of potential. 

“Fans come to the stadium to see players like Michael Olise.”
