Jamal Musiala contract action puts Premier League clubs on notice

Jamal Musiala is among the most decorated and highly-rated young talents. He is acclaimed for his clever playmaking skills, versatility, mesmerizing dribbles, and vision to create scoring opportunities. At the age of 21, he already boasts of an illuminating career, winning four Bundesliga titles and the UEFA Champions League in the 2019–20 season.

Born in Stuttgart, the attacking midfielder moved to Bayern Munich in 2019 after stints at Southampton and Chelsea, having moved to England at the age of 7. Reportedly, Musiala is considering a return to England amid interest from Premier League giants for a summer move.

Jamal Musiala reportedly rejects Bayern contract proposal

Jamal Musiala has established himself as a key player for the Bavarians over time. Since being promoted to the Bayern Munich senior team in 2020, he has made 153 appearances, scoring 40 goals and providing 27 assists across all competitions. The German talent is currently one of the most sought-after prospects in Europe.

Musiala recently celebrated his 21st birthday and has now declined a new deal at the Allianz Arena. According to a report by the Daily Star, the German international refused to sign a new contract worth £150,000 per week, making it quite clear that he is considering looking out for new challenges in the summer.

The midfielder has two years left on his current contract with the Bundesliga champions, which is set to expire on June 30, 2026. However, the likelihood of him staying until then seems quite low, considering the significant interest he has been attracting from the Premier League.

Manchester City and Liverpool are leading the race to attract young talent with their ambitious projects. In addition, Chelsea is also keen on bringing their former youth player back to Stamford Bridge. However, Chelsea might find it more challenging to navigate the stiff competition from these two Premier League rivals.

Jamal Musiala eyeing PL move

Jamal Musiala’s refusal to extend his contract suggests that the 21-year-old is keen on a switch to the Premier League, amid a surge of interest from top English clubs. The reigning English champions, along with Liverpool, sent scouts to watch him play against Bayer Leverkusen.

Following the recent developments, the player himself will be eyeing new opportunities in England. As he is under contract with the Bavarians, clubs interested in securing his signature this summer would need to meet at least the reported £80 million price tag. Both clubs are planning to make a move for the German wonder talent.
