Bayern Munich midfielder Aleksandar Pavlovic has signed a new five-year deal at the Allianz Arena.

The 20-year-old, who was called up to the Germany squad for Euro 2024 only to be forced out through tonsillitis, was one of the few bright spots in a disappointing season for Bayern as they relinquished their Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen.

Pavlovic came through the Bayern academy and is thrilled to be extending his stay at his hometown club.

He told the club’s official website: “Unfortunately, this tonsillitis has denied me my dream of playing in the European Championship on home turf, which is very disappointing – but I’m thrilled that my contract with FC Bayern has been extended until 2029.

“It shows the club has trust in me, which I’m eager to repay. FC Bayern is my home. I’m proud, happy and grateful, want to win trophies with the team and continue my personal development.”

Bayern sporting director Christoph Freund added: “It’s been wonderful following Aleksandar Pavlović’s incredible development over the last few months.

“He immediately established himself as a core member of the first team from his very first season and even went on to play for his national team.

“He may be young, but he radiates calm and gives the team a sense of security. He carries FC Bayern in his heart and we’re looking forward to the years ahead.”
