Manchester City prepared to smash their transfer record on Jamal Musiala: report

Manchester City are reportedly ready to smash their transfer record with a summer move for highly-rated Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala.

Born in Stuttgart, Musiala moved to England with his family at the age of seven and was part of Chelsea's academy.

The midfielder also represented England at Under-15 level, but left Chelsea to join Bayern Munich as a 16-year-old and also switched international allegiance.

Musiala has made over 100 appearances for Bayern since 2020 and is an established German international as well, with 27 caps to his name.

The 21-year-old, who can play as an attacking midfielder or a winger, is considered one of the game's brightest young talents and he has hinted in the past that he would be interested in playing Premier League football at some stage.

According to TEAMTALK, City are prepared to pay in the region of £120 million for the midfielder, which would smash the Sky Blues' previous transfer record – the £100m they paid for Jack Grealish to Aston Villa in the summer of 2021.

But Pep Guardiola lost both Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez after that triumph and the Catalan is reportedly keen to bring in a midfielder who can operate in tight spaces to unlock defences.

Musiala is currently under contract at Bayern until 2026 and is understood to be stalling on a new deal in Munich as he assesses his options for the years ahead.
