Bayern Munich has ticked multiple boxes under the management of Hansi Flick. The most obvious things are an attractive style of play and winning every possible silverware. Along with these two prime objectives, the German manager has also managed to integrate few young players into the first team.
Flick persisted with Alphonso Davies in the left-back position and polished the rough edges of his game. He also managed to get impact performances out of Joshua Zirkzee last season. The Dutch striker came up with big goals last season that eventually gave Die Roten an edge over their rivals in the title season.
In the 2020/21 season, Flick has slowly and steadily integrated Jamal Musiala in the first team. The 17-year-old forward has been training with the senior squad and consistently getting minutes from the bench across all competitions.
Bayern is reportedly in negotiations with Musiala for a long-term deal, but the English clubs have been showing interest in him. In an interview with SportBild (via Goal), Hansi Flick admitted that Musiala should be staying put in Bavaria as Bayern is the best place for him to fulfill his enormous potential.
“Why should he go anywhere else? He can develop here, and he has the support and appreciation of the club, the coaching team and the other players.”

The German Champions had signed Musiala from Chelsea in 2019. After spending just over a year in the reserves team, the teenager has been moved to the first-team squad. He has made his debut for Bayern across all competitions this season.
A lot of credit goes to the coaching staff and Flick for successfully handling the integration of Musiala. The player should also get the plaudits for grabbing these opportunities with both hands. He has managed to score three goals this season across all competitions. By the end of the season, if Musiala gets more than 1000 minutes at senior level, then it will be a big step in his development.
Since Musiala has come through the English academy at Chelsea, there will be always interest from top English clubs in him. For now, Bayern has shown more faith in him by giving debut in the senior team this season at the age of 17. It should be straightforward for the teenager to commit his long-term future to the German Champions.

Along with signing a new deal at Bayern, Musiala also has to make a big decision on his future in international football. He has already featured for England’s U-21 team, but Germany is also eager to secure his future. The coming months are going to be decisive for Musiala’s club and international career.
