Per a report from the Daily Mail, Bayern Munich is prepared to throw some serious cash at Jamal Musiala. The Bavarians do not appear willing to let anything go to chance as Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United are all allegedly interested in the talented 17-year-old midfielder.
Per the English outlet:
Bayern Munich are ready to hand Jamal Musiala a new deal worth in excess of £100,000-per-week amid mounting Premier League interest in the record-breaking teenager. Bayern have opened talks with Musiala in a bid to secure his long-term future but also reward the 17 year-old for his breakout 2020 and put him on terms that reflect his status as a member of Hansi Flick’s first-team squad. Munich are understood to have earmarked Musiala for a deal with a weekly, six-figure basic salary with further performance-related bonuses on top.
As we posted yesterday, Bayern Munich is taking a proactive approach toward some of its young talent. With his youth contract set to expire in 2022, the Bavarians have reportedly made locking down Musiala a priority — especially with three English giants lurking about:
Liverpool, whose boss Jurgen Klopp is a big admirer of Musiala, Manchester City, and Manchester United are among the clubs keeping an eye on his talks aware that one of Europe’s best young attackers could be available for a fraction of his true value. Bayern themselves prised Musiala away from Chelsea last July for a small fee and are now keen to avoid losing him in a similar fashion.
For now, Musiala is heading toward his 18th birthday on February 26th and Bayern Munich seems ready to use that milestone to engage the (current) England international in talks for a contract extension. As of now, Musiala seems set to continue his international career with England, but there is a chance he could switch allegiances and suit up for Germany.
What will be interesting with this situation is that we could get some insight into what Musiala is thinking for his future for both club and country very shortly. Will one decision have an effect on the other?
We might find out soon enough.
