According to Kimmich, Musiala is a world-class talent
Joshua Kimmich considers Jamal Musiala to be a “world-class” talent in the making. He claims it is the potential that still exists within Bayern Munich’s squad that convinced him to sign a new contract at Allianz Arena. The versatile Germany international has committed to new terms in Bavaria through to the summer of 2025. Exit talk had been sparked around Kimmich at one stage as he entered the final two years of his previous deal, but a highly-rated talent says the ability of those around him made it easy to commit. Kimmich told Bayern’s official website: “Like me, most of us still have our best years ahead of us – and everybody would like to have players like Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller or Robert Lewandowski in their team.
Kimmich is 26 and in terms of football, his best years are still ahead of him
“When I see Jamal Musiala – who’s already really good but can really become world-class – or also a Tanguy Nianzou with great potential, we can all take another step here and also have a good foundation for the next years to be able to achieve the highest goals.” Kimmich has made 264 appearances for Bayern as he enters the seventh season with the club and is delighted to have brought any uncertainty surrounding his future to a close. A man with six Bundesliga titles and a Champions League crown to his name said: “When I was a child, and we’d drive past Allianz Arena with my parents on our way on holiday, I’d marvel at it then even when it wasn’t lit up – that was usually during the day. To see my initials shining on it years later is a tremendous feeling.
“I’m 26 and think that, in terms of football, my best years are still ahead of me. I made a conscious decision to spend these years at Bayern. The package fits.”
