Germany and Bayern Munich football star, Thomas Müller has agreed to a contract extension with Bayern Münich, the German club have announced.
Müller has spent his entire career at Bayern, making 521 appearances with 195 goals and 186 assists to his name but his contract was due to run out in 2021.
He has now signed a new deal, which will keep him at the club until 2023 ending talks of possible transfers to other clubs.
“Both sides signed with a really good feeling. I’m sure that once we’re playing again, we’ll continue to be very successful. That spurs me on. For me, the number one priority was to extend at FC Bayern – and the club felt the same way,” Müller said in a statement after signing his new contract.
“I’ve been with FC Bayern for a good two-thirds of my life now, so you can’t say that the club and I are just along for the ride – we fight for each other. This club is not just any old employer for me. It’s my passion. I’m happy that I’ll be here for two extra years, and I’ll give everything on and off the pitch,” he added.
Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said:
“I’m pleased that Thomas Müller has extended his contract by a further two years until 30 June 2023. I would like to thank Thomas and his advisor Ludwig Kögl for the very trusting and fair talks.”
“Thomas is a special player for us, a figurehead for the club and our fans, a leader who shows the way on the pitch and has achieved a lot with FC Bayern,” added sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.
