Bayern Munich confident of Jamal Musiala new contract despite Premier League interest

Bayern Munich are confident of tying Jamal Musiala down to a long-term deal at the club despite interest from the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, 90min understands.

Although he is just 20 years of age, Musiala has been one of the best players in Germany for the last few seasons, scoring 32 goals since breaking into the Bayern first team during the 2019/20 campaign. At age 17, the midfielder became both the youngest player to play for Bayern in the Bundesliga and the club’s youngest ever goalscorer.

Musiala was in particularly electric form for his club last campaign, bagging a stunning 22 goal contributions en route to yet another Bundesliga title – a title Bayern won thanks to his last-gasp goal at Koln on the final day.

This form has notably led to interest from a number of top clubs in the Germany international’s services. Sources have confirmed to 90min that El Clasico rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona are keen to sign Musiala having monitored his progress for a number of years, while Premier League interest in the player is also significant.

90min understands that Liverpool have been keeping close tabs on Musiala, while Manchester City are also ‘huge fans’ of the player.

Along with Liverpool and Man City, there is further interest from Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea – the latter of which actually had Musiala on their books between 2011 and 2019 before he opted to join Bayern as a 16-year-old.

Sources have told 90min that said Premier League clubs have all asked to be informed of Musiala’s potential availability.

Despite all of this interest, Bayern are currently very confident that Musiala will commit his long term future to the club.

Musiala’s current contract at Bayern runs until 2026, and 90min understands that there is an intention to open talks over a new deal next year.
