The strict rule Michael Olise must follow at Bayern Munich that players have been fined for breaking

The strict rule Michael Olise must follow at Bayern Munich that players have been fined for breaking

Michael Olise will have to follow a strict rule should he complete his move to Bayern Munich.

Michael Olise will have to follow a strict car rule should he complete his move to Bayern Munich.

On Friday the Athletic revealed that Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise has opted to join Bayern Munich.

The Bavarian giants are now expected to agree a deal with Palace, while Chelsea, who were also vying for the France under-21 international’s signature, have pulled out of a move due to the finances involved.

Newcastle United were also said to have approached Palace, while Manchester United and Manchester City had long retained an interest in the winger.

Olise, who signed a fresh four-year deal at Palace a year ago, scored 10 goals and provided six assists in 19 appearances last term, despite a campaign disrupted by a hamstring injury.

And should he complete his move to Bayern as expected he will have to follow a strict car rule, alongside the rest of his new squad.

Bayern have a long-term partnership with German car manufacturer Audi, who also own 8.33 per cent of the club.

As part of the deal, Bayern players and staff have received a company car from Audi since 2002, with stars allowed to select their preferred model and personalise their registration plates.

Squad members are expected to drive to and from the Sabener Strasse training base in their Audi vehicles, as well as matches and other club-related activities.

While Bentleys, Bugattis and Porches are deemed acceptable, given they are part of the Volkswagen group, some stars have fallen foul of the rules in the past.

The likes of Niklas Sule Jerome Boateng, Philippe Coutinho and Kingsley Coman have all been guilty of not abiding by the rule, with BILD reporting in March 2021 that the latter was facing a £43,500 fine after coming to training in his Mercedes.

He was denied entry to the training facility by club staff and was forced to park his car on the street.
