Bayern Munich are closer than ever to locking two star players to long term stays at the Allianz Arena, according to multiple reports out of Germany. In doing so, Bayern will have secured the services of Germany superstars Thomas Müller and Jerome Boateng through the 2020-21 seasons.

Müller is currently making around €8.5 million a season, and his contract runs through 2019. The new reported deal will see Müller's salary nearly double bringing him to €15 million annually. This would make him the highest paid player at FC Bayern.

The attacker has been pursued by Manchester United over the last few years with Louis van Gaal's side tabling a €120 million transfer offer that the Bavarians rejected without a second thought. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was even forced to tell United to stop emailing him, because the answer would always be No!

As for Boateng, he's currently on a deal through 2018 at around €6 million a season. This is not a salary befitting one of the world's best centerbacks, and FCB knows it. They're currently looking to keep Boateng at the Allianz for a few extra seasons at a new rate of €12 million. This would put Boateng among the club's highest earners alongside Franck Ribery and Mario Götze.

It's very possible that one or both of these deals could be announced soon at the Bayern Munich AGM. Now that the club has ruled out Guardiola's extension until the Christmas break, the club will be looking to make another splash announcement.
