After Arkadiusz Milik has repeatedly been associated with a move to FC Bayern in recent months, the Polish national striker is now off the market. He is dragged from the Italian first division SSC Naples to Olympique Marseille in the French Ligue 1.
After rumours about a change of militia to FC Bayern began in the summer, speculation about the personality has recently reappeared in the Polish and Spanish media. No wonder, Milik and Bavarian superstar Robert Lewandowski have been storming side by side in Poland’s national team for years.
But the transfer won’t work. As officially confirmed the night after Friday, Milik will instead move from Naples to Olympique Marseille – initially for a year and a half on loan.
The French then have a purchase option for the 26-year-old attacker. According to media reports, this includes a purchase option of eight million euros, which can increase to up to 12 million euros due to performance-related bonus payments.
