Bayern Sign Chelsea Youngster Musiala  (Sky Sports)

Chelsea FCBundesliga giants Bayern Munich have signed one of Chelsea’s top young talents – and it’s not Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Sky Sports News understands that academy star Jamal Musiala has turned down a long-term offer from Chelsea in favour of a three-year deal in Germany.

The 18-year-old was born in Germany and has international honours with both England and Germany at Under-16 level.

Musiala plays as an attacking midfielder or striker and has scored three times and provided two assists in nine appearances for England U16s.

He was also capped at England U15 level at the age of 13.

It's understood the young star, who will join Bayern immediately.

The news comes as a significant blow to Chelsea, who will receive compensation from Bayern for their young forward, but will be disappointed to lose such a talent while under a two-window transfer ban.

Musiala is the latest teenager to leave England for Germany in recent years, with the likes of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson presently excelling in the Bundesliga.
