Man Utd transfer blow with Jamal Musiala 'to sign five-year Bayern Munich deal – and 17-year-old will earn £100K-A-WEEK'
BAYERN MUNICH are set to end rumours over Jamal Musiala’s future by tying him down to a bumper new £100k-a-week five-year deal.
The 17-year-old left Chelsea’s academy for the Bundesliga side in 2019 and has burst onto the scene this season.
The England Under-21 international is still currently on a youth contract and has caught the attention of Manchester United.
Premier League rivals Liverpool are also interested in the winger – but now The Guardian claims Bayern are close to ending any uncertainty about their starlet.
They began negotiations over a new deal in December and now he is believed to be on the verge of penning an incentivised contract, running until 2026, when he turns 18 on February 26.
And although the basic salary will be lower than the three figure mark, it could rise to that if he meets certain goals.
Once that situation is sorted, Musiala may have to decide his international future.
The attacker, who came off the bench when Bayern beat Tigres to win the Club World Cup last week, was born in Stuttgart but moved to London when he was seven years old.
The dual citizen faces a tough choice over which country to play for having represented both at youth level.
German football director Oliver Bierhoff recently told Bild: “We had a very good and open conversation.

“We clearly showed him what we think of him and that we are convinced that he will be a national team player, but it's a very personal decision.”
Musiala is the latest youngster to leave an English side and head to the Bundesliga to continue his development – like Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham.
England U21 manager Andy Boothroyd said: “We’ve got a lot of players with dual nationality.
“It’s down to our work with them, whether they enjoy coming with us. Is it progressing their careers? I think yes, it is.
“At some point we are going to miss out on a player but the environment, system and pathway – there aren’t many who have as good a record as we do currently.
“The lads will all get their opportunity and we’ll have to make tough calls as we go on. We don’t need to do any special measures for anyone – the pathway is there.
“Some players get stretched and moved up quicker than others. I don’t think there is a better time to be an England player.”
