Dante signs new Bayern contract

Bayern Munich defender Dante has signed a one-year extension to his contract at the club, ending speculation about his future.

• Schaaf: Bayern leave it late

The Brazil international, 30, had been linked with Manchester United, but he has instead chosen to commit his future to the European champions.

The former Borussia Moenchengladbach player has enjoyed great success since joining in 2012, winning the Treble last season, and is a key part of the side that has gone unbeaten in the Bundesliga this campaign and that has reached the Champions League quarterfinals.

“It was the best decision of my life to come to FC Bayern,” he said in a press release. “Everything is great: The club, the team, the trophies, the atmosphere.

“Bayern are the right club for me. That’s why it’s a pleasure to stay until 2017. I am sure that we’ll have a lot of fun and success with our team in the years to come.”

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added: “Dante was certainly one of best transfers in recent years. In only one and half years he has turned into an important player for our team -- on and off the pitch.

“With Dante our team has won five national and international trophies. Moreover, he’ll see the dream of every Brazilian footballer turn reality in the summer: A World Cup participation in his home country. We are very pleased that Dante will call FC Bayern a home until 2017.”
