Musiala was born in Stuttgart but moved to England aged seven – and has represented both nations at youth level.
He was educated at prestigious private school Whitgift in Croydon.
Their famous sporting alumni also include Callum Hudson-Odoi, Victor Moses and rugby star Danny Cipriani.
Whitgift’s director of football and former Crystal Palace striker Andrew Martin told DW Sports: “He would score 50+ goals for us a season, and he wasn’t far off that mark at Chelsea.”
Musiala was part of the Chelsea academy from the age of eight but left to join Bayern in July 2019.
His exciting form for the reigning Champions League holders is expected to be rewarded.
Musiala is now expected to be handed a first call-up to Aidy Boothroyd’s Young Lions squad.
He should be part of the group for their two Euro qualifiers against Andorra and Albania at Molineux later this month.

Musiala only made his first-team debut in June, coming on as a sub for Bayern Munich in their 3-1 win over SC Freiburg in the Bundesliga.
In September, he became Bayern’s youngest-ever goalscorer in the Bundesliga – scoring in the 8-0 rout over Schalke.
The former Chelsea academy ace was just 17 years and 205 days old when he came off the bench and made history against the side from Gelsenkirchen.
