England youth international Jamal Musiala is close to signing a new deal with Bayern Munich, and the German champions are looking to avoid the interest reported by Liverpool and Manchester United.
Musiala spent time with Southampton and Chelsea in the early part of his career, but joined Bayern in the summer of 2019, where he has gone from strength to strength. The 17-year-old has practically always been on the Hansi Flick Matchday squads this season, making 25 appearances and scoring three goals.
Bundesliga leaders have high hopes for the teenager, who has yet to decide whether his international future is in England or Germany, but has yet to sign a professional club-level contract, something Bayern are keen to amend earlier. how late.
As first reported The GuardianBayern have submitted a long-term contract whereby the youngster could deposit £ 100,000 per week and expect to be signed in the near future.
Liverpool and United are said to be on the lookout for the situation, but there has been nothing to suggest that either side will move for him, nor is he expected to push for a move at this stage in his career.
Bayern have not hidden their desire to keep Musiala, but there has been no panic either, the general mood is one of confidence that he will finally sign in the long term.
Manager Flick is on record saying, “Why should I go elsewhere? Here he can develop and has the support and appreciation of the club, the coaching staff and the rest of the players. “
In terms of his international future, the Stuttgart-born Musiala could still play for England or Germany and both countries are naturally interested in recruiting him. He has been quiet about the situation, but has represented England from the U-16 category, but there seems to be confidence in both fields.
Neither has offered him the possibility of a senior debut that would set his future in stone and it remains to be seen if that will happen before this summer’s Euro Cup.
