After completing the extension of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka said to have agreed a new deal with the club, Bayern Munich now turn their attention to extending the contracts of Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, and Robert Lewandowski.

Sport1 reported this week that there had been initial talks between Bayern and Serge Gnabry over a new deal, as the German winger has less than 2 years left on his current contract.
While talking to the same publication this week, Gnabry didn’t give away much about his future at the club. The German winger did admit that he is completely content with life in Bavaria, but there is still some time left on his deal.
The negotiations between the defending champions and French winger Kingsley Coman are proving to be a lot more difficult, however. The 24-year-old's contract also runs out in 2023, but he has been in deadlock with Bayern over contract extension talks when Coman rejected Bayern's first contract offer.
It was reported over the summer from Germany and around Europe that Coman was heading for an exit from the Allianz Arena, with Liverpool being interested in the winger. But Coman stayed put in Bavaria and negotiations continue over his future.
The 3rd player that Bayern are looking to extend is the master marksman Robert Lewandowski. Like Coman and Gnabry, Lewandowski's contract also expires in 2023, and Bild reported that the Polish striker is waiting for a new contract from the record champions. Lewandowski should be the easiest of the 3 to extend, but Bayern are factoring in the fact he is 34 and they are preparing for the future.
