Muller, Boateng, Martinez, Alonso sign new Bayern Munich deals
Thomas Muller has extended his contract with Bayern Munich until 2021, bringing an end to speculation linking him with a summer move.
The Germany international has been regularly linked to Barclays Premier League clubs, but the 26-year-old has now committed his future to the Bundesliga giants.
Bayern have also extended Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez’s deals until 2021, while Xabi Alonso’s new contract keeps him at the Allianz Arena until 2017.
"I come from the area, I’ve been here 15 years and of course I’m delighted," Muller told Bayern’s television channel, FCB TV.
"I am proud and happy that I have extended my contract."
Muller is currently enjoying one of his most prolific seasons in a Bayern shirt, having netted 13 Bundesliga goals with less than half of the season completed.
He has also scored five times in the Champions League, helping the Bavarians set up a last-16 tie with Juventus.
Boateng has become a mainstay of Bayern’s defense and Martinez, who joined from Athletic Bilbao for a club-record fee of Eur40million (currently $43.3m) in 2012, has been a key player for Pep Guardiola when he has been fit.
Alonso, 34, showed he still has plenty to offer with a stunning goal to book Bayern’s place in the quarter-finals of the DFB-Pokal in midweek.
He has extended his stay in Munich by a year, with next season perhaps being the last of his successful career.
Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the Bundesliga club’s website, www.fcbayern.de: "We’re delighted to have tied down these important players in the long-term.
"Thomas, Jerome and Javi know how to win titles, even the Champions League.
"With them, we’re ensuring quality and stability for our team in the long term."
