France international Ribery, 30, confirmed towards the end of last season that he planned to extend his stay with the club.

And following the beginning of pre-season training Bayern took the opportunity to tie down the three-time Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal winner.

"I'm really pleased,'' Ribery told the club's official website. "I always said how great it feels to be at FC Bayern.

"I have a good feeling for me and my family and I hope things will carry on the way they were in the past year."
