Serge Gnabry is reportedly prioritising signing a new contract with Bayern Munich amid strong interest from Real Madrid this summer.

According to AS, Serge Gnabry is keen on signing a new contract with Bayern Munich, despite attracting serious transfer interest from reigning Spanish and European champions Real Madrid.

Gnabry has been with Bayern Munich since 2017, when he joined from Werder Bremen. After spending a season away on loan at TSG Hoffenheim, the 26-year-old has grown into a pivotal player for the Bavarian giants. To date, he has made 171 appearances for Die Roten, racking up a tally of 64 goals and 40 assists.

Gnabry enjoyed a prolific campaign last time out finishing with 17 goals and ten assists from 45 games in all competitions. However, with the German international entering the final year of his contract this summer, there has been a lot of speculation over his future, with Real Madrid one of his most ardent suitors.

Real Madrid are keen on strengthening their attacking unit this summer and have been exploring possible alternatives to do so after Kylian Mbappe snubbed them and signed a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain. Raheem Sterling of Manchester City has emerged as a key target but he could be headed to Chelsea, leaving Los Blancos in search of other options.

Gnabry, to that end, has popped up as a target. Given that Marco Asensio is likely to move on this summer, Real Madrid will be left with Rodrygo Goes as the only viable option on the right flank. Signing Gnabry would add more quality and depth to their attacking unit as Carlo Ancelotti goes about defending the domestic and European titles.

Gnabry, for his part, was believed to be prioritising a transfer to Real Madrid. However, as per the latest report from AS, the 26-year-old is believed to be comfortable at Bayern Munich and would like to continue at the Allianz Arena beyond this summer.

Indeed, the report states that Gnabry has made signing a new contract with the German Bundesliga champions his top priority. There had been talks about the German international being unhappy with the salary offered by Bayern, but that is not the case. And once the winger returns from his vacation, discussions will likely resume over an extension, which will come as a blow to Real Madrid.
