Serge Gnabry has signed a new contract that will keep him at Bayern Munich until 2026
However, Gnabry has now decided to stay in Bavaria after penning fresh terms. His extension was announced this afternoon during a team presentation.
On signing the contract, the former Arsenal man told Bayern: ‘I thought a lot about what I wanted as a player for the next few years – and came to the conclusion: I want to stay at Bayern, win everything here again and experience something – above all the Champions League again.
‘Celebrating titles, but this time with our fans. It’s something special because I can play here with my friends at the highest level. I certainly wouldn’t experience that at any other club. I want to experience great moments here again – and not somewhere else. The hunger for big titles doesn’t go away.’
Julian Nagelsmann got the best out of Gnabry last season as he scored 14 league goals
Gnabry played his first professional football with Arsenal and was brought into the Gunners academy as a teenager in 2013, before Arsene Wenger appeared to lose faith in him and sent him on loan to West Brom in February 2016.
He was then shipped to Werder Bremen in 2018 before making the switch to the Bavarian side a year later, where he has gone on to become a world-class performer.
Winning 12 major trophies with Bayern including four Bundesliga titles, a Champions League and the Club World Cup, Gnabry has enjoyed a stellar career back in Germany.
He scored 14 goals and laid on six assists in 34 Bundesliga games last season for Julian Nagelsmann’s side – his best goal return in the league.

The 27-year-old also has an stunning record for Germany, with 20 goals in just 34 appearances.
Hanging on to Gnabry means Bayern will be a terrifyingly quick attacking outfit next season, as he joins the likes of Sadio Mande, Kingsley Coman and Leroy Sane.
Losing Robert Lewandowski will be a blow as the Polish striker appears to be headed for Barcelona, but the German champions will still be a team no full back in the world looks forward to playing.
