Jamal Musiala

Bayern Munich and England U21 midfielder Jamal Musiala is set to sign a new contract with the club, reports Jacob Steinberg of The Guardian.

The 17-year-old is close to agreeing on a deal that will see him stay with the German champions until 2026 and would bring an end to the youth agreement which currently ties him to the club.

Keeping Premier League Suitors Away

Bayern are keen to stop Musiala from having his head turned by Premier League clubs who are interested in signing him. Both Liverpool and Manchester United have reportedly been monitoring the midfielder since his move to Bayern from Chelsea in 2019.

Steinberg reports that discussions over this deal began in December and that they have progressed in recent weeks.

The deal will be incentivised and will begin from February 26 when Musiala turns 18.

The starting salary is expected to be lower than £100,000-per-week but could rise to that depending on the goals that the midfielder meets.

Musiala was on the bench last night as Bayern’s five-match winning run in the Bundesliga came to an end. The Bavarians played out a thrilling 3-3 draw against Arminia Bielefeld, in which Alphonso Davies’ brilliant strike rescued a point for the league leaders.

Despite not appearing in that game, Musiala has made an impression on the Bayern first-team this season. Most recently, he featured in both of their games at the Club World Cup – a 2-0 win against Al Ahly and a 1-0 success over Tigres.

He also has three Bundesliga goals to his name this season. He scored on the opening day rout against Schalke, hitting the last of Bayern’s eight-goal haul, bagged in the 5-0 win against Eintracht Frankfurt, and hit the first equaliser in the 3-3 draw against RB Leipzig.
