It’s official! Bayern Munich have extended Thomas Muller until 2023. The German world cup and treble winner was one of many players in negotiations to extend his contract this summer, and now he’s finally put pen to paper on a new deal that will see him get a raise and two more years on his previous contract, which was set to expire in 2021.
Here’s the official confirmation by the club twitter:
Despite economic uncertainty looming over the sport due to the coronavirus outbreak, Bayern Munich have made a statement by signing their fan-favorite player onto a new contract.
This announcement comes just days after Hansi Flick was also made the permanent head coach of the club, and that’s probably not a coincidence. Flick is a known admirer of Muller and considers him one of the most important players on the pitch, so it’s only natural that der Raumdeuter finally made his commitment official after being certain that Flick would stay on.
Now, with the coach and the vice-captain on new deals, the Bayern bosses can concentrate on signing the three other key players onto new contracts. David Alaba, Thiago Alcantara, and Manuel Neuer are all in the running for new deals, and we hope to hear good news soon!
