Spain midfielder Thiago Alcantara is the latest Bayern Munich star to extend his contract, according to German media reports.

German daily Bild and magazine Sport Bild claim the 29-year-old is set to join Thomas Mueller, Alphonso Davies and head coach Hansi Flick who have already committed to the defending Bundesliga champion. With a year left on his original contract, Bild says a new deal has been agreed and Bayern will announce the length of Alcantara’s new contract “during the course of the week.”

The central midfielder and playmaker has scored 31 goals in 227 appearances for Bayern since joining from Barcelona in 2013.
