Musiala extension „a major goal“ for Bayern bosses

Jamal Musiala

At the beginning of March, Bayern extended the contract of top talent Mathys Tel on a long-term basis. The young Frenchman plays a major role in the plans of those responsible. After Tel, Jamal Musiala is now set to follow soon. According to sporting director Max Eberl, the extension of the DFB star is a top priority in Munich.

Even though Jamal Musiala is still contractually tied to the German record champions until 2026, the Bayern bosses want to extend his contract as soon as possible. Musiala has repeatedly been linked with an early departure from Säbener Straße. A scenario that Max Eberl & Co. would like to avoid at all costs.

„Mathys has already extended his contract until 2029, an extension is a major goal for Jamal, there can be no other option for us,“ emphasised Eberl in an interview with Sport BILD.

Musiala is in no rush

While Eberl is already in concrete talks with Alphonso Davies and Joshua Kimmich, there are no new developments to report regarding Musiala. According to reports, sporting director Christoph Freund made an initial approach to the player at the end of last year. According to BILD, however, these were merely informal talks and an initial meeting.

According to BILD, Musiala is in no rush to extend his contract. According to the report, the 21-year-old does not want to take a closer look at his sporting future until the summer at the earliest. The decisive factor for Bayern will be whether they can offer the German international an attractive prospect in Munich. This is very closely linked to the coaching and squad issues.

Top clubs are already waiting in the wings

One thing is clear: thanks to his rapid development at FC Bayern, Musiala has long since become the focus of numerous top clubs. These include Chelsea FC, Manchester City and Liverpool FC in particular.

English media recently reported that Musiala is flirting with a return to England. Born in Stuttgart, he played for Southampton and Chelsea in his youth before moving to FCB in 2019.
