Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick has revealed that he is sure Jamal Musiala is going to sign a new contract with the German champs, however, he refused to be drawn on the youngster’s international future as both England and Germany vie for his services.

Musiala is in the final stages of his youth contract and talks over extending his stay in Bavaria have been ongoing as he edges towards his 18th birthday.

Hansi stated that there should be no reason why Musiala would want to continue his development and play for another club as he has everyone at the club in his corner to succeed.

Speaking to Bild, Flick was asked if there was a possibility that Musiala could leave the current European champions:

โ€œWhy should he go anywhere else? He can develop here, and he has the support and appreciation of the club, the coaching team, and the other players. “

When it comes to his international playing future however, Flick did not want to get dragged into the debate that currently surrounds the playmaker.

โ€œI spoke to Jamal and told him that he would have to decide it all by himself,” added Flick. “He has to take responsibility for his future himself.”

German national team director Oliver Bierhoff spoke to Bild last week and stated that he is confident that Musiala will choose the DFB (German Football Association) over England.

We had a very good and open conversation, we are convinced that he will be a national team player, but it’s a very personal decision.โ€

German national boss Joachim Low revealed that he will pick Musiala even though there are questions over his future at the international level despite Germany being out of sorts in recent times regarding their performances under Low.

Bayern Boss Flick has been touted as a potential replacement for Low, however, he revealed he has no plans to step into the national team role after his incredible start to life at Bayern.

“I know what it means to work at FC Bayern and I see no reason to think about anything else,” he said. “I have absolutely no reason to change anything at the moment.”

Flick then spoke glowingly of Low:ย “He is still doing a great job. I remember from my time how everyone raved about the way we played football when we became world champions [in 2014]. That was a development, which he was in charge of.”
