Jamal Musiala rejects new contract offer from Bayern Munich with interest from Liverpool and Man City Transfers

Jamal Musiala, a 21-year-old midfielder who has also played for Southampton and Chelsea and will play for Bayern Munich from 2019, made his debut in the Bundesliga in the 2019/20 season before establishing himself in the first team the following season, starting many games along the way.

He continued to progress steadily and was promoted to a regular role from the 2022/23 season. He has been an absolute starter this season, starting from the kick-off in most games, with the exception of his injury layoff.

He has also played 25 games for the German national team, which is an impressive amount of experience for a 21-year-old.

The Stuttgart-born midfielder, who is under contract with Bayern until June 2026, has been continuously linked with interest from the Premier League. He was also reportedly in talks to extend his contract with his club, but a new development has taken place.

According to The Mirror, the German midfielder has turned down a new contract offer from Bayern and is aiming to challenge for the Premier League this summer. Liverpool and Manchester City are serious about signing him, and both teams had sent scouts to Bayer Leverkusen’s game.

It seems that they were offered as much as 150,000 pounds per week, but they made an offer to the Bundesliga champions that they would not sign a contract. And whether he knows it or not, the situation has fueled speculation that he will leave Munich this July.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are also eyeing another German gem, Leverkusen midfielder Florian Wirtz. If, as seems likely, Xabi Alonso is born at Anfield, the chances of this happening should be even greater.

Both players are attacking midfielders who should be the future of Germany, and both require huge transfer fees. Liverpool, having successfully revamped their midfield during last summer’s transfer window, it would be unrealistic to expect any big-name signings this summer, but the club is already looking to add to its squad.

In any case, reinforcement plans will only be finalized after the appointment of a new coach is confirmed. Will Liverpool bring in young talent from the Bundesliga as they did last year?
