With a host of Bayern Munich players nearing the end of their contracts, the club have been busy negotiating new deals. Having renewed the deals of Josep Stanisic, Joshua Kimmich, and Leon Goretzka, Bayern have now confirmed a new contract.

On Wednesday, Bayern announced they have extended Kingsley Coman’s contract until 2027. Coman was previously under contract until 2023, with the new deal guaranteeing his stay for another four years.

Coman first joined Bayern on a loan deal from Juventus in 2015. After completing his two-year loan spell, the German giants decided to sign him on a permanent deal.

Since then, the Frenchman has won six Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokal trophies and a Champions League honour at Allianz Arena. A match-winner in the 2020 Champions League final against his former club PSG is the highlight of Coman’s Bayern career.

Speaking in an interview after extending his contract, Coman told the club’s website:

“I’m very happy because FC Bayern are one of the best clubs in the world and I know we still have a lot of opportunities and big goals here.

“My best years as a footballer are still ahead of me, and I’m glad I’ll be spending them at FC Bayern.

“My biggest goal is to win the Champions League again – and this time, please, together with our fans.”

Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn added: “Players with Kingsley Coman’s ability are wanted by clubs all around the world.

“This contract extension is another example of how attractive our club is at the highest level internationally.
