Bayern Munich have extended the contract of rumoured Manchester United target Thomas Muller until 2021.
Muller was joined by Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez in extending his deal to 2021, while Xabi Alonso has committed his future to the club until 2017.
The news come as Bayern boss Pep Guardiola is reportedly set to announce next week that he is to leave the Bundesliga side at the end of the season.

Man United had been linked with a move for Muller throughout the summer transfer window and the club reportedly had a £50m offer for the German turned down.
Unfortunately, it looks like another case of a player flirting with a move to Manchester in order to secure a better contract at their own clubs.
Dani Alves and Sergio Ramos did the same this summer before renewing with Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively, while the likes of Dante have in the past.
