In a recent report, Fichajes revealed that Manchester United are hoping to land Bayern Munich starlet Jamal Musiala. It has been mentioned that the Red Devils could face competition in the form of Real Madrid and Liverpool in pursuit of the German international.
Musiala’s Impressive Run Of Form In German Football
Musiala is having an impressive campaign at the Allianz Arena as he managed to produce a run of influential performances for Bayern in the final third. The 19-year-old has banged in 12 goals and grabbed 12 assists in 31 matches for both his club and country this season across all fronts.
The talented youngster has given a good account of himself in the opposition half by averaging 1.1 tackles, 2.6 shots, 1.8 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per 90 minutes in Bundesliga. He has even been tidy when distributing possession in the final third, based on his pass success rate of 83.9% in the top tier of German football (stats via whoscored).
Musiala even managed to catch the eye while representing Germany in the 2022 FIFA World Cup recently. His current contract with the Munich giants is set to run out in the summer of 2026. Therefore, Man United will have to make a sizable offer if they are serious about landing him next year.
What Will Musiala Bring To Manchester United?
Musiala is a solid tackler of the ball and can create some decent plays for others around him on the attacking end of the field. He can strike the ball with power and accuracy from long range and is a decent dribbler with the ball as well.
The German sensation is primarily an attacking midfielder but can also fill in as a box-to-box midfielder or as a left-sided wide player if told to do so.
Musiala has got the potential to become one of the best players in his position someday. Hence, he will be an excellent signing for the Red Devils if they can find a way to lure him to Old Trafford.
We can expect the German whizkid to bring a lot of goals and creativity to Erik ten Hag’s frontline at the Theatre of Dreams. He could even help the Mancunian outfit compete for some major trophies over the next decade.
However, at 19, Musiala still has a lot to learn and might need time to settle into life in English football. Still, Man United would do well to win the race to acquire his services next year.
