After impressing in the early part of his Rangers career, Ibrox fans are already eager to see the club snap the 20-year-old up and ensure his future in Glasgow is guaranteed.

However, there has been some confusion and speculation regarding how much it will cost Rangers to make any Malik Tillman move permanent.

Now, Four Lads Had a Dream have added to the speculation by responding to a fan who asked the question regarding the agreed option-to-buy fee on Instagram.

The Rangers insider simply replied with an emoji of a hand holding up five fingers, suggesting that the fee is either £5m or €5m.

Bayern to retain Malik Tillman Rangers buyback

For plenty of Rangers fans that would represent a snip and given the fact Bayern are retaining a vested interest in the player, it points to the talent Malik Tillman possesses.

The Bundesliga giants will retain an exclusive buy-back clause in any deal taking Malik Tillman to Rangers permanently, with Bayern believing the player capable of making the grade in Germany.

That’s a big statement about Tillman’s talents and Rangers director Ross Wilson has been praised for engineering such a deal for one of Europe’s top talents.

Speaking to the Athletic, former Bayern director Michael Reschke praised Wilson for striking such an “intelligent” deal.

“Everyone involved in the deal deserves huge compliments. I was surprised by the move as usually top talents like Malik would go to Austria or another German side and it’s not common for a Scottish club to do this sort of deal,” said Reschke.

“It’s unusual, so I compliment the scouting system and the sporting director at Rangers for the decision.

“I was very surprised when I read it. I thought, ‘Oh, there is someone intelligent there to do this deal’. It’s a very clever deal.”

So far Malik Tillman has made eight appearances for Rangers this season, scoring two goals and laying on a vital assist for Antonio Colak in the PSV Champions League Playoff.

Meanwhile, a controversial Rangers Champions League move could recoup up to £9m for the club.
