Bayern Munich’s talented star is being chased by several Premier League clubs after impressive displays for Bundesliga giants.

Bayern Munich is in the process of beginning contract negotiations with the young midfielder; however, they are facing increased pressure to secure his services with a host of Premier League clubs intently keeping an eye on the situation.

Musiala who is just 17 years of age could potentially be in line for a new contract worth up to €100,000 after he has had regular game time under Hansi Flick and has broken a number of records in the process.

Even though Musiala has been playing first-team football, the youngster still is on a youth contract and that has only 18 months left on the deal.

Premier League clubs Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United are all reportedly keeping tabs on the contract situation if negotiations between Bayern and Musiala break down.

The youngster has made a total of 15 appearances for the Bavarian side in all competitions and his performances have seen his stock rise quickly and his stature in the Bundesliga has grown to new heights.

Musiala came through the ranks at Chelsea’s youth academy, however, the Bundesliga giants came calling as they were said to offer a superb pathway for his football and more rewarding terms for the youngster.

The decision to sign a new contract for Musiala could potentially affect his footballing future at the international level too with England and Germany both looking for him to play for their respective countries.

However Germany might feel that they are in the box seat to secure Musiala with Bayern looking to extend his contract, but Aidy Boothroyd who currently is England’s Under-21 manager has saved a spot in the squad for the youngster so he can be apart of the under 21 European Championship which begins in March.

The Young Lions have stated that they are liking how Musiala is developing with Bayern Munich.

“Definitely, he has increased game time,” Boothroyd said. “We don’t know, but he might have a growth spurt and he hasn’t finished growing yet. I saw him against Atletico Madrid the other day and he didn’t look out of place against that massive array of talent for Bayern Munich.

“We are really pleased for him, he did well for us, scored, and personally I think it might be too early for him to make the seniors in March just yet. But in two or three months with more experience, you just never know.

“Being out in Germany, training with that calibre of players and coaches every day is really going to help his development for us.” Boothroyd said.
