Kimmich settled in Bavaria

Speaking after the ink dried on his new deal, Kimmich said: "The most important reason for my contract extension is that I can pursue my passion with joy every day here at FC Bayern.

"I have a team where I can achieve everything, and a lot of teammates have become real friends. That's why I started playing football in the first place, because it should be fun.

"I still don't think I'm at the end of my development and I'm convinced there's a lot possible at FC Bayern in the next years. On top of that, my family feels at home here. Munich has become a second home. The combination we have here isn't found all over the world."
