Bayern Munich tie down midfielder Joshua Kimmich to a new four-year contract

Joshua Kimmich has committed his future to Bayern Munich until 2025 with a new four-year deal.

Following an excellent 2020-21 campaign, in which he scored five goals and contributed 14 assists in all competitions, Kimmich agreed to fresh terms ending any speculation he may look to leave Bayern.

The Germany international had only just entered the last two years of his previous deal but Bayern were determined to tie him down to a new contract to keep him at the Allianz Arena.

Kimmich, who is tipped to be the successor to Manuel Neuer’s captaincy, will be 30 when his new contract expires.

‘The most important reason for my contract extension is that here at FC Bayern I can enjoy my passion every day,’ Kimmich told the club’s official website.

‘I have a team with which I can achieve anything, and a lot of my teammates have become real friends. That’s why I started playing soccer in the first place: Because it should be fun.

‘I don’t see myself at the end of my development yet and I am convinced that a lot is possible at FC Bayern in the next few years. In addition, my family feels very comfortable here. Munich has become a second home.

‘The combination that we have here cannot be found anywhere in the world.’
