According to a report from Football.London, Jamal Musiala honed his skills at Chelsea before blossoming into one of the most electrifying talents in the global football scene with Bayern Munich. Interestingly, Musiala has already hinted that he might consider the possibility of returning to Chelsea at some point in the future.
Although it may seem like an optimistic aspiration, Jamal Musiala has previously referred to Chelsea as his ‘family,’ reigniting speculation about a potential comeback. In a 2021 interview with The Times, he expressed, “My friends [in England] made me feel welcomed and at ease. Chelsea and the FA are like family to me, and I am confident that even when I am not with them, I will always be considered part of the family.”
Musiala’s Impressive Start To Bundesliga Football This Season
Jamal Musiala has had an impressive start in the Bundesliga this season as the youngster has showcased some influential displays in the attacking end of the field for the German giants. He has made just three appearances but has managed to pick up an assist for his side across all fronts.
The 20-year-old has been sensational in the final third after averaging 1.5 tackles, 1.5 shots, 1.0 key passes and 4.0 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga. He has also been accurate while distributing the ball after completing 88.1% of his attempted passes in the German top flight (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at Allianz Arena will run out in the summer of 2026. Hence, it won’t be easy for the West London club to sign him for a reduced fee at the end of this season.
Will Chelsea Boss Mauricio Pochettino Entertain The Notion?
Musiala possesses solid tackling skills and the ability to unleash powerful and precise long-range shots. He is a technically adept footballer who has consistently performed well in the Bundesliga.
The German talent exhibits excellent vision in creating scoring opportunities in the final third and is a highly skilled dribbler. While primarily operating as an attacking midfielder, he can also adapt to roles as a left-winger or a box-to-box midfielder if required.
Bringing Musiala into the fold would undoubtedly elevate the quality of Chelsea under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino. His presence could potentially fuel the Blues’ pursuit of major trophies in the coming years.
At the age of 20, Musiala is considered a generational talent and would be a dream option for the West London club to consider at the conclusion of the upcoming season. He has the potential to become a success story at Stamford Bridge. However, it’s likely that the German giants will be hesitant to let him depart, regardless of the price tag attached.
