Blow to EPL giants as key target signs contract extension
Munich, Dec 18 (IANS) German giants Bayern Munich on Friday announced the football club had reached agreements with influential players Xabi Alonso, Javi Martinez, Jerome Boateng and Thomas Muller over contract extensions.
Muller, Boateng and Martinez signed new deals keeping them at the Allianz Arena until 2021, while Alonso, 34, signed a one-year extension on his current deal, which expired at the end of the 2015-16 season, reports Efe.
The deals handed to Muller, Boateng and Martínez are of five years. Tying Germany striker Muller, a fan favourite and object of interest from some of the English Premier League’s biggest spenders over the last year, was a priority for the Bayern board. Muller said he was “happy and proud” to have extended his contract with the club.
At a press conference on Friday, Alonso also said he was content to have signed on for another year and that he and his family are settled and happy in Munich. According to figures published in German media, Muller is now one of Bayern’s highest earners at 13.5 million euros ($ 14. million) a year.
