FCB loan out two prospects

German giants FC Bayern München have parked two of their developmental prospects in the 2. Bundesliga in transactions confirmed over the last two days. 

German record champions FC Bayern München have finalized two loan-outs for developmental prospects over the last two days. Former FCB Campus product Maurice Krattenmacher - only just re-acquired from SpVgg Unterhaching a short time ago - will spend the season on loan with newly promoted 2. Bundesliga side SSV Ulm 1846. That move was confirmed on Saturday. 

Today, it was announced that South Korean youth international Hyun-Ju Lee will be moving to Hannover 96 for the coming season. The 21-year-old attacking midfielder has extensive experience with both the Bayern reserves and the German second division. Lee played with SV Wehen Wiesbaden on loan last year, scoring four league goals and notching an assist in 31 appearances across all comps. 

In other Bayern-related transfer news, Sky Germany is now reporting that the deal to bring French winger Michael Olise to FC Bayern München has been finalized. The 22-year-old will not come cheap. The German Pay TV provider claims that Bayern will pay EPL club Crystal Palace some €60 million for the French Olympic representative's services. 

After the announcement that VfB Stuttgart central defender Hiroki Ito would be coming to Säbener Straße, Olise will constitute Bayern's second major summer signing. Ito was procured for a reported €23 million base transfer fee. Olise's reported upon release clause was actually in the neighborhood of €70 million, suggesting that Bayern have managed to conserve some cash.
