Bayern Munich want to tie Musiala down to new terms
Liverpool and Manchester United have received a transfer blow as Bayern Munich have begun to make contract negotiations with Jamal Musiala. Musiala’s £100,000-per-week salary demands have been holding up Bayern’s attempts to tie him down to new terms. Jamal is currently tied to the club under a youth agreement that will expire in 2022. But the German champions are looking to secure his long-term future. Bayern are still working on reaching a compromise with the teen midfielder, but negotiations between the two sides are now moving forward. Musiala, who spent eight years at Chelsea’s academy before moving to the Allianz Arena in 2019, is very open to extending his stay at Bayern, despite rumours linking him to a return the Premier League.
Hansi Flick has praised the 17-years-old that he has amazing qualities
Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City have been monitoring the youngster’s situation, but his current employers hope he will sign an extension before turning 18 on February 26. Bayern head coach Hansi Flick recently talked about Musiala’s talents after entrusting him to play a vital role in his senior squad, telling reporters: “Jamal has amazing qualities”. Bayern have a clear interest in retaining this player for a longer period.” The England Under-21 international has already hosted 21 appearances in all competitions for Hansi Flick’s side in 2020-21, scoring three goals. The 17-years-old’s current manager at international level also singled out him for special praise at the start of the season, with Aidy Boothroyd saying after the Three Lions’ 5-0 win over Albania: “He increased his playing time.”
“We don’t know, but he may have a growth spurt and hasn’t even finished growing yet. Being in Germany, training with this calibre of players and coaches every day will help him develop for us”. Jamal’s latest outing came from the bench as Bayern took a 1-0 win away against Augsburg, which saw Bayern maintain their four-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table. Jamal will be back in contention for a place in Flick’s starting XI when the Bavarian outfit travel to Vetlins-Arena to face Schalke on Sunday. Bayern Munich can take another step towards their ninth consecutive Bundesliga title with a win in Gelsenkirchen before the club’s focus shifts to a home match against Hoffenheim on January 30.
