Bayern Munich have confirmed that club captain, Philipp Lahm, and Manchester United target, Thomas Muller, have both extended their contracts.
The 30-year-old and the 24-year-old have both signed a two-year extension to their respective contracts, as confirmed by the club on Wednesday.
Lahm will stay until 2018 and confirmed this will be his last contract, meaning he will finish his career at the Bavarians.
Muller, who was linked with a move to Manchester United, has committed his future to Bayern until 2019 .
The Best Young Player of the 2010 World Cup had recently declared he wants clarity about his role at the German double winners and now confirmed: “We had progressive talks with the club bosses,” he said as quoted by the club’s official website.
“I have the feeling to play an important role in the future plans of the club.”
Muller has played 165 Bundesliga games for Bayern, scoring 58 goals and assisting further 61, while Lahm has even made 260 domestic appearances for the Bavarians.
Bayern CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, was seemingly delighted to keep two key players at the club.
“Philipp Lahm and Thomas Muller are two important players at Bayern,” he told the club’s official website.
“Both have started their career here and both will also play an important role in future.
“We are very happy that both players committed their long-term future to Bayern.”
