Despite a knee injury in October which kept him out for 10 games, Ribery, who will be 36 when his contract expires, has managed five goals in 19 league games this season.

He was a key figure when Bayern won the treble in 2013 of Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League titles, providing 11 goals and 23 assists in a total of 43 matches.

It was Ribery's final pass which Arjen Robben converted for the winning goal at Wembley when Bayern beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in that year's Champions League final.

"When I came to Munich in 2007, I was looking to push my career to the next level," Ribery wrote on Instagram.

"But I never imagined winning eight German championships, the German Cup five times and the Champions League trophy with this club.

"But what I found above all that success is a place called home.

"Thanks to everyone who is supporting me, to my beloved family and friends, the best fans, team mates and staff.

"Let's work hard to make this time another glorious chapter in the story of the best club in the world."
