Hansi Flick has promised Bayern Munich will look to keep Jamal Musiala after the teenage midfielder was linked with a Premier League move.
The England Under-21 player has entered the last 18 months of his youth contract with the Champions League winners and, after a major first-team breakthrough this season, he stands to be offered professional terms.
That could mean a bumper pay deal, with Bayern eager to retain Musiala for the long term.
However, reports have claimed Manchester United and Liverpool are among the clubs that have an eye on Musiala, who at 17 has scored three times in 13 Bundesliga appearances this term.
Only two of those appearances have been starts, and the youngster has impressed head coach Flick whenever he has been deployed.
Speaking in a news conference on Friday, Flick said: “Jamal has enormous qualities.
“He can find good one-on-one solutions and is self-confident. Even if he misses the pass every now and then. He’s got the quality to play off the opponent and create options for the team.
“Bayern Munich are clearly interested in retaining him for longer.”
Musiala, who was born in Stuttgart, joined Bayern from Chelsea in July 2019.
