Serge Gnabry has signed a new contract at Bayern Munich, his club have confirmed.
His deal, which will now run until 2026, finally puts an end to speculation surrounding his future – after several clubs expressed their interest in the winger.
As revealed by Sportsmail, Chelsea were weighing up a move with ‘tentative’ enquiries made, while Arsenal, Manchester United and Man City were linked.
However, Gnabry has now decided to stay in Bavaria after penning fresh terms. His extension was announced this afternoon during a team presentation.
Gnabry, who has three Bundesliga titles and a Champions League crown to his name, has told Bayern’s official website: “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.
“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.”
