Bayern Munich attacker Serge Gnabry has extended his contract with the club until 2026 the club has announced. The 27-year-old was entering the final year of his contract this season and the higher-ups have moved swiftly to conclude a renewal with the former Arsenal man. Since joining the club from Werder Bremen in 2017, Gnabry has won four Bundesliga titles, two DFB-Pokals and was a key player in the historic sextuple 19/20 season where they swept everything in their path.
Gnabry’s new contract will put him in the same bracket as Kingsley Coman and Leroy Sane. There are also rumors that he could be an option for centre-forward with the departure of Robert Lewandowski edging closer. Last season, Gnabry scored 14 goals and recorded five assists for die rekordmeister even though he didn’t have a good season.
Herbert Hainer, FC Bayern president: “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.”
Oliver Kahn, FC Bayern CEO: “With his spectacular style of play, Serge Gnabry is a player who fans come to watch. We’re glad that he’s extended his contact and look forward to him continuing to be an important part of our team. Serge came to Munich at the age of 22 and has grown into a Champions League winner and international here. We need top international players like him to achieve our big objectives.”
Hasan Salihamidzic, FC Bayern board member for sport: “We’re happy that Serge Gnabry has extended his contract at FC Bayern until 2026. Serge has become a face of FC Bayern, he’s a German international, a goal threat – and he still has potential that he wants to fulfil. As our good and trustful talks with him and his advisers demonstrated, Serge identifies with our path and with FC Bayern. He’s part of the core of our team, he’s given the club a lot so far and will continue to be an important player for us.”
Serge Gnabry: “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 FC Bayern, win everything again here and experience things – in particular celebrating another Champions League title, but this time with our fans. 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.”
