Veteran Müller extends contract with FC Bayern Munich | football news

BERLIN: Thomas Müller has extended his contract with FC Bayern Munich until 2024, as announced on Tuesday. The Germany international will spend his entire professional career with the Bundesliga champions, who he joined at the age of 10.
“The path we have traveled together since I joined the youth team in 2000 has been a fantastic success story so far,” said 32-year-old Müller, who won the eleventh championship title with Bayern this season.
“So let’s continue together,” added the 2014 world champion, who has played 112 international matches for Germany since his international debut in 2010.
Müller and top scorer Robert Lewandowski, Bayern captain Manuel Neuer and winger Serge Gnabry should be out of contract in 2023.
He is the first of the quartet to extend his contracts amid speculation Lewandowski could leave with Barcelona as a possible destination at the end of the season.
Bayern managing director Oliver Kahn describes Müller as “a figure I can identify with who carries the emblem of our club in his heart.
“He’s someone who takes the lead and he’s also an important character with his style in the dressing room,” added Kahn.
Since turning professional for Bayern in 2008, Mueller has played 624 games, scoring 226 goals and creating 242 more.
He was also part of the Bayern squad that won the Champions League title in both 2013 and 2020.
