Liverpool are alongside the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, and clubs from Spain, in eyeing up the potential transfer of Bayern Munich attacking midfielder Jamal Musiala, according to Fabrizio Romano in his exclusive column for the Daily Briefing.
Writing in today’s piece, Romano explained that there is some truth to Liverpool and others monitoring Musiala amid a lack of progress over a new contract for the Germany international at the Allianz Arena.
However, he insists that although the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City like Musiala, it’s normal for clubs like this to keep an eye on top young players of this calibre, and that there’s not currently anything advanced going on in terms of negotiations or offers.
Bayern also plan to hold contract talks with the 20-year-old, with these discussions delayed due to so many changes at board level in recent months.
“Some reports in Germany are making big claims about the future of Jamal Musiala at Bayern Munich. His contract is due to expire in 2026, and at the moment it’s true that there is no agreement with Bayern over a new deal,” Romano said.
“Why? Because at the moment the plans to discuss a new contract were with Bayern’s old management – the likes of Oliver Kahn, who recently left the club – they were preparing a new contract proposal for Musiala, and then the management changed.
“Now there are new people in charge at Bayern, so the timing of the contract talks changed, and there are still no talks because of this change at the top of the club. Still, for Bayern it is an absolute priority to keep Musiala, because they know there will be interested clubs.
