Bundesliga star Jamal Musiala eyeing Real Madrid move

Jamal Musiala eyes Real MadridAfrican footballers. A highly-rated Bayern Munich attacker, Jamal Musiala, reportedly wants to move to Real Madrid amid uncertainty about his future. The former Chelsea and Southampton academy player has become one of the top playmakers in Europe since joining Bayern in 2019.

At 21, Musiala has scored 43 goals and provided 31 assists in 163 games for Bayern, including 12 goals and eight assists in 38 matches during the 2023-24 season. Despite his impressive performance, Bayern ended the season without a major trophy for the first time since 2011-12.

Musiala’s next career move is a hot topic, as he will soon enter the final two years of his Bayern contract and has been rumored to leave for several months now.

Musiala targets Real Madrid as next destination

Musiala has reportedly rejected a new contract offer from Bayern Munich, sparking interest from Manchester City, Liverpool, and Barcelona ahead of a potential summer bidding war. However, according to Marca reporter Carlos Carpio, the German international is keen on joining Real Madrid, making a contract renewal at Bayern highly unlikely.

Despite this, Bayern Munich is said to be demanding around €115 million for Musiala, a significant increase from the €200,000 they paid Chelsea for him five years ago, effectively ruling out Barcelona. Liverpool is also unlikely to meet such a high asking price, leaving Manchester City and Real Madrid as the main contenders for the 21-year-old’s signature.

Alternatively, interested clubs might choose to wait until 2025, when Musiala enters the final 12 months of his contract, potentially lowering his transfer fee.
