Munich, Monday 24 March 2014: Bayern strengthened a longstanding Brazilian connection  on Monday when centre-back Dante (30) agreed a one-year extension to his current contract, keeping him at Germany’s most successful club until 30 June 2017.

“Joining Bayern was the best decision of my life,” commented Dante, “everything here is good: the club, the team, the trophies we win, the atmosphere. Bayern is the right club for me and that’s why I’m delighted to be staying in Munich until at least 2017. I’m certain this team can enjoy a lot more fun and success in the years to come."

“Signing Dante was definitely one of our best transfers of recent years,” commented FC Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “In just a year and a half he has emerged as one of our most important players both on and off the field. In the time Dante has been in the team we’ve won five domestic and international trophies. On top of that he is set to fulfil the dream of every Brazilian footballer this summer by playing at the World Cup in his home country. We’re delighted Dante has decided to make FC Bayern Munich his home until 2017.“
