Bayern Munich boss Max Eberl has heaped praise on Jamal Musiala and has reiterated his aim to keep the playmaker at the club for a long time.

Jamal Musiala has been taking the European Championship by storm this summer, playing a vital role in Germany’s impressive start to the tournament. With the playmaker showcasing his qualities on the world stage, the pressure is mounting on the Bayern Munich bosses to ensure that he stays at the club for years to come.

The 21 year old’s current contract with Bayern Munich is set to expire in 2026, and talks over a new deal are expected to take place after the European Championship. For Max Eberl, there is no doubt that Musiala is the face of the Rekordmeister. And the Bayern board member for sport wants to help make sure that Musiala stays at the club for years to come.

"We are delighted with the great performances of Jamal and the entire national team at Euro 2024,” Eberl told SportBILD. “Jamal is providing some incredible highlights at this tournament and giving the German fans a lot of joy. He is an outstanding player, and he also comes from our academy. That's why he's already a face of FC Bayern. We are happy to have him with us."

“Like all of us at FC Bayern, Vincent Kompany’s goal is to work with Jamal for as long as possible and to achieve success with him. We are not concerned about anything else."

Everyone at Bayern Munich will certainly hope that talks with Jamal Musiala over a contract extension go smoothly. He is already a cornerstone of the Bayern team, and will have a key role to play as they look to wrestle back the Bundesliga title next season.
