Thomas Muller’s contract with Bayern Munich has been extended until June 2024.
The former contract of the 32-year-old forward would have expired in June 2023, just like that of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer (36) and striker Robert Lewandowski (33).
Neuer is widely expected to sign a new contract, but Lewandowski’s situation is more complicated.
“It gives me immense pleasure every year to represent these red colors on and off the field, even when the wind blows in your face.”
“So let’s keep tackling it together,” Muller, who holds the Bundesliga record with 11 German titles as a player, said.
Muller, who won the World Cup with Germany in 2014, made his Bundesliga debut for his one and only club in 2008.
“Thomas Muller is an iconic figure who carries our club’s crest in his heart,” Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn said.
“Bayern has always been known for its consistency, which is why we are pleased that we have been able to extend our relationship with this important player.”
“He is a leader, and his demeanor in the locker room makes him an important character.”
