Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has signed a new two-year contract with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
Choupo-Moting, 32, joined Bayern in October 2020 after spending two seasons with Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, initially signing a one-year deal.
The striker made 32 appearances in all competitions in his maiden season with the club – only 13 of which were starts – and scored nine goals.
Choupo-Moting, who will play under new head coach Julien Nagelsmann next term after Hansi Flick left to take the Germany job, said: “I am proud to be here. FC Bayern is a very special club; the number one club in Germany and also one of the best clubs in the world.

“My first year here was great. On the pitch, but also off the pitch, we had a lot of fun together. I want to continue to have success with the team. I’d like to reach the DFB-Pokal final in Berlin and ideally win the Champions League.”
Board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic added: “We are happy that Maxim will stay with us for another two years.
“He is a very important player for us, performing strongly last season and scoring many goals. Maxim can be used in several positions, has very good technique, a lot of experience and is a goal threat.
“Aside from his sporting quality, Maxim is also important for our team as a person. He will help us achieve our goals in the next two years.”
