Bayern Munich maestro Franck Ribery has stated his desire to extend his stay at the club by signing a new contract, Sky Sports reports.

The 30-year-old joined the club back in 2007 and has been a key figure in the side that has dominated the Bundesliga this season and played a major role in helping them to reach the Champions League final.

He is currently under contract until 2015 and has spoken of his desire to pen a new deal that could keep him in Bavaria until he decides to hang up his boots.

“I am very happy being at this club,” he told German publication kicker-Sportmagazin.

“If there is a possibility to sign a new contract with a club like Bayern Munich, why should I not agree to something like that?”

Ribery will have to impress the incoming Pep Guardiola, though, if he wants to earn a prolonged stay with the German champions.

This season has seen him continue to exert his influence by bagging nine goals and 18 assists in 39 games. However, since joining the club he’s made over 230 appearances, scoring 78 and creating 116.

His form for the international team has been impressive too and he can most likely count on having his seat on the plane booked for next year’s World Cup in Brazil.
