O’Rourke adds that Musiala’s contract with the Bundesliga champions expires in June 2026. He adds that the player is currently in negotiations for a new deal with the German giants.
It’s also reported by O’Rourke that Musiala is currently frustrated by not being a regular starter under Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel. Tuchel has preferred to start Thomas Muller this season as reported by Football Insider.
Jamal Musiala is regarded as one of the premier young talents in world football. He starred for Bayern Munich last season as they won their eleventh consecutive Bundesliga title. He scored 16 goals and contributed 16 assists in 47 appearances last season in all competitions.
Musiala is the second midfielder to be linked with the European champions. It was also reported by Jacque Talbot that City continues to monitor Lucas Paqueta. Kalvin Phillips future with the club is also believed to be in doubt. Fabrizio Romano previously reported that it does appear that the England international is likely to leave City in January.
With Jamal Musiala links to Manchester City growing it appears that the treble winners are planning to strengthen their midfield.
