A string of Europe’s biggest clubs are considering a summer move for Bayern Munich star Jamal Musiala, but Manchester City are leading the race for his signature, according to reports.

The 21-year-old has been a regular in the Bayern team for four seasons now, already racking up over 150 first team appearances, winning four Bundesliga titles along the way.

The former Chelsea youth team standout has also accumulated 27 caps for Germany and will play a big part this summer at Euro 2024 on home soil.

However, he could be returning to England soon after that, with The Independent reporting that Manchester City are considering a bid for him in the next transfer window.

Liverpool are also credited with an interest in the playmaker, along with Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, but the Premier League champions are reportedly in pole position.

Musiala’s contract with Bayern Munich runs until 2026 but there has been no suggestion that he intends to sign a new one and the German giants could be tempted to cash in on him this year while they can still demand a huge fee for him.

The Germany international is thought to be interested in a move to the Premier League at some stage after growing up in England from the age of seven and representing the Three Lions from Under-15 to Under-21 level before opting to represent the country of his birth at senior level.

He also, reportedly, wants some encouragement on whether Bayern will be improved next season after a poor campaign in the Bundesliga by their standards.

Thomas Tuchel’s side remain in the Champions League and are well placed in the quarter-finals after a 2-2 draw at Arsenal in the first leg of their quarter-final tie.

However, despite being second in the Bundesliga, they are 16 points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen and the title race is already over.

If Musiala did make a big-money move, it would be good news for Chelsea, who lost him to Bayern when he was just 16.

The Blues agreed a 20 per cent sell-on clause in the contract that took him to Bavaria, so they would be set for a big pay day on a deal that would likely cost at least £80m.
