Highly-rated English-German young winger, Jamal Musiala has signed a new bumper contract with Bayern Munich, his first professional deal with the club, a week after turning 18.
He recently snubbed England and committed his international future to Germany and on Friday, March 5, signed a five-year deal running until 2026.
Musiala has already played 27 times for Bayern’s first team, scoring four goals.
Musiala told Bayern’s official website: “I’m really pleased to have signed my first professional contract at FC Bayern.
“I just feel very good at the club and in the team, I’m playing with the best players in the world and I can learn from them every day in training. Hansi Flick, [director] Hasan Salihamidzic and [chief scout] Marco Neppe along with the whole club have believed in me and given me the chance very early on.
“I just want to repay that faith with good performances, keep getting better and win a lot more titles with FC Bayern. My aim is to become an important player for this club.”
Chief scout, Salihamidzic said: “We’re very happy that Jamal has decided to sign his first professional contract at FC Bayern on a long-term basis. This has been a joint effort. Before Jamal came to FC Bayern in summer 2019, we had to and were able to convince him and his family about our project.”
“Now we must all ensure that Jamal continues to be nurtured and challenged. I am sure that he will bring a lot of joy to FC Bayern.”
Born in Stuttgart, Musiala spent eight years in Chelsea’s academy before joining Bayern in 2019, breaking into the first team the following year.
He became Bayern’s youngest Bundesliga player when making his debut in June 2020, and scored his first goal in the 8-0 thrashing of Schalke on the opening day of this season.
