Talented Bayern Munich youngster Jamal Musiala has signed his first professional contract worth £4.3m per season that will keep him at the club until 2024.
The midfielder made a name for himself in the Bundesliga since breaking into the Bayern first team at the age of 17. Musiala made his debut on the penultimate weekend of 2019/20, giving a glimpse into what he has to offer. He has gone on to make 17 Bundesliga appearance this season, scoring three goals, and helping Bayern land an historic sextuple.
“We are very happy that Jamal signed his first contract and it was a long-term one for Bayern,” the club’s sports director Hasan Salihamidzic said in a statement.
“Now we have to make sure Jamal develops and is challenged.”
