Serge Gnabry has committed his future to Bayern Munich by signing a new long term contract, the club announcement confirmed on Friday.
The 27-year-old winger, whose contract was due to expire next summer, has decided to extend his contract until 2027.
The German international has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester City as a potential Raheem Sterling replacement who joined Chelsea this week in a deal worth £47m.
Manchester City were looking to capitalise on a £35m deal for the German forward as an ideal Sterling replacement.
With Gnabry refusing a move to London recently, and allegedly refusing a contract extension with the Bavarian side, Manchester City were given all the green signals to secure the signature of the Bundesliga winger.
However, Serge Gnabry has blindsided the Manchester Club with a boomerang four years contract extension with Bayern Munich.
According to Fabrizio Romano, signing for the German side has always been Gnabry’s priority, even though Bayern Munich recently brought Sadio Mane on board.
Mane’s arrival at Bayern was the source of Gnabry’s transfer controversy but the German international has chosen to extend his contract in a bid to offer healthy competition for the flanks with the newly signed African winger
