Bayern Munich have this afternoon announced the contract extension of Serge Gnabry (27) until 2026.
“I thought a lot about what I want as a player in the coming years, and came to the conclusion that I want to stay at Bayern, win everything again here and experience things – in particular celebrating another Champions League title, but this time with our fans,” Gnabry told the club’s website.
“It’s special because I get to play here with my friends at the highest level. It certainly wouldn’t feel the same at a different club. I want to experience more great moments here – and nowhere else. The hunger for major honours isn’t going away.”
Gnabry had 12 months remaining on his previous deal and had attracted attention from Premier League side Chelsea, but negotiations advanced in the past days and on July 14, Gnabry’s 27th birthday, the Germany international informed Bayern Munich that he will extend his contract.
Bayern president Herbert Hainer added: “It’s another strong signal that a player like Serge Gnabry sees his future at FC Bayern. He’s won everything here and identifies with the club so much that he wants to help write more chapters of club history.
“When he’s on the ball, he’s a joy to watch. With him, Sadio Mané, Thomas Müller, Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sané and Jamal Musiala, FC Bayern have outstanding options on the flanks which are among the best in European football.”
Gnabry was a key player in Bayern’s historic sextuple, which included a Champions League win. Since joining the club from Werder Bremen in 2017, Gnabry has played 171 games in all competitions, scoring 64 goals and creating 40.
