Kingsley Coman has signed a new contract with Bayern Munich which will run until 2027.

The Frenchman joined the German giants in 2017 after spells with Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus and has enjoyed both domestic and European success.

He has won six Bundesliga titles so far but his crowning moment came in the 2019/20 Champions League, when he scored the winner in the final against Paris Saint-Germain.

Coman told the club's website: “I am very happy because FC Bayern are one of the best clubs in the world and I know that we still have a lot of opportunities and big goals here.

"I've been with the club since 2015 - it feels like a big family. Everything is perfect here. My best years as a footballer are still ahead of me, and I'm glad I'll be spending them at FC Bayern. My biggest goal is to win the Champions League again - and this time together with our fans, please."

Club CEO Oliver Kahn added: “Clubs all over the world are looking for players with the skills of Kingsley Coman. This contract extension is another example of how attractive our club is on an international top level. Kingsley fully identifies with FC Bayern, he has found his sporting home here.

"Today, world-class players think very carefully about where to sign their contracts. We're delighted that Kingsley has signed up with us for the long term: When he's on the ball, our fans have fun. For such players, the spectators come to the stadium."

Coman's deal is the latest new contract in Bayern's squad. Star midfielder Joshua Kimmich signed new terms until 2025 in August last year, while Leon Goretzka also put pen to paper on a fresh long-term deal.

Those who could be next in line for new contracts include Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller, all of whom have deals which run out in 2023.
