Michael Olise Joins Bayern Munich

Published

Michael Olise has decided to join Bayern Munich.

Olise, who starred for the Eagles last season, has been on the radar of several Premier League clubs.

However, Chelsea are thought to have pulled out of the process amid questions over their transfer budget.

Olise has a release clause in his Palace deal, though this is only thought to apply to teams in the Champions League.

According to The Athletic, Chelsea and Newcastle who aren’t in the competition next season, both made initial contact with Palace.

However, Chelsea is understood to have pulled out of the process, with the same publication indicating the Blues considered the financial terms “beyond reach”.

The west London side attempted to land Olise 12 months earlier, only for the ex-Reading star to instead agree an improved deal at Selhurst Park.

Manchester United and Manchester City have both been admirers of Olise but are not reported to have been among a trio of clubs to make early contact with Palace.

Olise is not part of France’s Euro 2024 squad, where Les Bleus are in Group F with Poland, Austria, and The Netherlands, but was named in Thierry Henry’s Olympics squad.

The 22-year-old played just 19 times for Palace in the Premier League last season but found the net 10 times.

He starred in a 4-0 victory over Manchester United towards the end of the season as Oliver Glasner’s side ended the campaign in fine form.

Bayern turned to the Premier League last summer when they completed a big-money move for Harry Kane.

Olise would be a big statement signing for the Bavarians as they aim to return to the summit of the Bundesliga under new manager Vincent Kompany.

A large number of terrorists have reportedly escaped in a mass breakout at the high-security Koutoukalé prison in Niger Republic.

According to security expert Zagazola Makama, the incident happened on Thursday, resulting in the release of hundreds of terrorists, criminals, and drug traffickers.

The prison, situated near Niamey, the capital city, experienced a violent uprising that overwhelmed the guards, enabling the prisoners to escape with weapons and vehicles.

Witnesses said they heard gunfire and explosions around the afternoon time, which prompted a swift response from security forces.

However, by the time they arrived, the inmates had already taken control of the prison, breaching armored gates, barbed wire, and trenches.

The escape has raised serious questions about the security of the prison, which has previously thwarted two jihadist attempts to free comrades.

An investigation is underway to determine how the inmates were able to procure weapons and overpower their guards.

The Interior Minister has issued a radio message to all governors, confirming the escape and urging village chiefs and religious leaders to report any suspicious individuals.

A curfew has been declared in the Tillabéri region, and the entire River Niger region is on high alert.

The escape is considered a major security breach, and authorities are working to recapture the fleeing inmates.

The public has been warned to be vigilant and report any information that could aid in the recapture of the escaped prisoners.
