Manchester City failed with last-ditch effort to sign Michael Olise

Michael Olise is closing in on a move to Bayern Munich, but Manchester City tried to sign him from Crystal Palace before he agreed to join the Bavarian giants.

According to Football Insider, Manchester City were keen on signing Michael Olise, and they failed with a last-ditch effort to sign the Frenchman. The youngster is on the verge of joining Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old is regarded as one of the finest young attacking prospects in the Premier League, and he should prove to be a superb long-term investment for the Bundesliga club. As for Manchester City, missing out on him will be a blow.

Manchester City need more quality and depth in the attacking areas, and they could use a quality winger like him. Jack Grealish has been quite underwhelming and Bernardo Silva has been linked with a move away from the club. Someone like Olise would have been a quality long-term investment for them.

Despite his injury problems last season, the Crystal Palace winger managed to score ten goals in the league and pick up six assists. He would have added goals and creativity from the flanks. He is capable of operating in the central areas as well. The French winger is an elite talent with a bright future, and it will be interesting to see if Bayern Munich can help him fulfil his world class potential.

Michael Olise could improve Bayern Munich in the attack

The German giants will certainly benefit from signing a quality player like him, and it remains to be seen whether the 22-year-old can hit the ground running in the Bundesliga. There is no doubt that he has the physicality and technical attributes to succeed in German football, and he will look to establish himself as an indispensable asset for Bayern Munich.

Joining the Bavarian giants will be a major step up in the winger’s career. He will look to challenge for major trophies with them. Bayern Munich have a proven track record when it comes to competing for trophies, and it is no surprise that Olise is convinced about joining them this summer.

The winger was linked with several other clubs apart from Manchester City, and they will be disappointed to have missed out on an elite prospect like him. It will be interesting to see if Manchester City decide to move for other targets now. They should look to add more quality and depth to their attacking unit before the summer window closes.
