Click through the gallery above to see Bayern's top earners, and what they earn yearly, according to capology.com.

The Bundesliga leaders announced on Wednesday that captain Manuel Neuer had extended his contract until 2023.

The goalkeeper became the latest star to put pen to paper on a new deal, with Thomas Muller and Alphonso Davies recently signing extensions too.

"FC Bayern are very happy Manuel has extended his contract until 30 June 2023," CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club's official website.

"Manuel is the best goalkeeper in the world and our captain."

Neuer initially wanted a longer contract and reportedly asked for an annual salary of €20 million (R393 million). However, Bild has reported that although his new salary is an improvement on the €15 million (R295 million) a year he was earning previously, it does not exceed €20 million.

As a consequence, Neuer is currently the third-highest earner at the club, with only Robert Lewandowski and Philippe Coutinho understood to receive more.

Lewandowski signed a new deal worth €20 million a year at the beginning of the season, while on-loan FC Barcelona star Coutinho is said to earn €25 million – you can find Bayern's top nine earners in the gallery above!
