Man Utd continue chase for Bayern Munich in-demand midfielder

By | January 22, 2021

Manchester United are looking to move for 17-year-old sensation Jamal Musiala, according to recent reports.

The former Chelsea sensation is in talks with Bayern Munich regarding a new contract but negotiations are understood to have stalled.

Playmaker Musiala is after a whopping £100,000 per week contract in spite of his tender years, according to Goal.

And his demands are believed to have caused a deadlock – with the German heavyweights unwilling to cough up.

Jamal is still on a youth contract which does not expire until summer 2022.

But having broken multiple records with the Bavarians, if an agreement cannot be reached, a summer move looks likely.

The England U21 ace has played 12 times in the Bundesliga this term and he has netted three goals from those games.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and the Premier League champions Liverpool are also said to be keeping tabs on the current situation.

In September, Jamal became Die Roten’s youngest ever Bundesliga scorer in an 8-0 rout over th struggling Bundesliga side Schalke.

The former Chelsea academy player was just 17 years and 205 days old when he came off the bench and made history versus the side from Gelsenkirchen.

Bayern signed Musiala from the Blues in the summer transfer market of 2019 with the West Londoners gutted to see the player go.

Meanwhile, Manchester United may let teenage attacker Facundo Pellistri depart on loan in January to gain regular first-team minutes, claims the Manchester Evening News.

The 19-year-old South American is yet to make his senior debut for the English giants after joining from Uruguayan side Penarol for £8 million last October.
