Thomas Muller with a new contract

Thomas Muller has renewed his contract with Bayern Munich to 2023. There were some speculations that Muller will leave the club being frozen out by manager Niko Kovač, but the German extended his contract.

The 30-year-old German had only one year with the Bundesliga leaders, but now his stay at Allianz Arena will be until 2023.

Muller managed to restore his place in the starting XI after slipping down the pecking order under Niko Kovac.

Thomas Muller has scored six goals and assisted 16 in 25 games for Bayern Munich this season.

The 30-year-old German international made his debut for the Bundesliga giants back in 2008 and since then he won 21 major trophies wearing Bayern Munich shirt.

Muller won the Bundesliga title eight times and since he has been in the club, he won the Champions League once.

For his time at Allianz Arena Muller made 521 appearances and scored 195 goals.

In 2014, The Guardian ranked the German the fifth-best footballer in the world.

Muller made a statement on the official site of Bayern Munich saying: “Both sides signed with a really good feeling."

“For me, the No.1 priority was to extend at FC Bayern - and the club felt the same way.

“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.”
