Pep Guardiola believes Jamal Musiala can become the best No.10 in the world soon, and wants Manchester City to sign him.
That is according to Abendzeitung in Germany.
So, what is the latest on Manchester City and Jamal Musiala? Let’s take a look…
What’s the story?
Well, speculation involving the treble winners and the 20-year-old is heating up.
Christian Falk – who works for BILD in Germany – claimed on Wednesday that Guardiola personally wants Musiala at the Etihad Stadium.
A story from BILD then stated that Bayern Munich are feeling worried about Manchester City’s interest in the Germany international.
Now, some more details on Guardiola’s admiration for Musiala have emerged.
Abendzeitung believe the Spaniard thinks Bayern Munich’s No.42 can become the best No.10 on the planet within two years, and views him as the ideal replacement for Kevin De Bruyne.
The Belgium international turns 33 in June and has suffered some worrying issues with his hamstring in recent years, so it seems as if he may sadly be starting to decline.
The lowdown on Jamal Musiala as Manchester City circle
Normally, a player of Musiala’s talent simply wouldn’t be on the market.
However, there have been whispers of the Stuttgart-born wonderkid being unhappy at Bayern Munich, mainly due to his role under Thomas Tuchel.
The aforementioned story from BILD mentions that the Manchester City target keeps being dropped following impressive performances, as Tuchel wants to deploy Thomas Müller in the side in a No.10 role.
Abendzeitung add that Musiala wants to play for a side capable of winning the UEFA Champions League, while he personally holds ambitions of winning the Ballon d’Or, so requires a top coach to develop his astonishing potential.
Be sure to keep an eye on this situation, as rumours involving Musiala and Manchester City will not go away.
