The names Bayern Munich and Thomas Müller are synonymous, a pair that go hand in hand. However, as the fan-favourite’s form supposedly declined in recent years, there have been constant rumblings that he will leave the club to pastures new. Fortunately for all fans fearing his departure, according to kicker Müller and Bayern have already begun initial talks on a two year-contract extension.

Both parties are said to be content with this duration, which would run up to 2023 — when Müller will be 33 years old. Moreover, a two-year contract appears to be the most responsible for both parties. For the club, they retain both Müller’s services on the pitch and the ability to renew his contract again if Müller can still play at the top level in 2023.
