“I’m not a selfish person. ‘I know what I had at Bayern and appreciate it very much. I also know that I’ve been doing my best not to disappoint the club and the fans for the past eight years. After this time I feel that it is time for a new stage”, he said.

‘I respect FC Bayern and its rules. But changes, especially after such a time, are part of the life of the club and the player. I hope that doesn’t come across as selfish. I have a contract, but I also tried to make it clear to the club how I feel.

‘I’ve always tried to do my best for FC Bayern to meet the expectations of the team and the fans. I appreciate the Bayern fans, they have always supported me. If I wasn’t honest about my situation, I would feel like I wasn’t being fair to the fans.

‘I don’t know [Whether he’ll move this summer or not]. I still have a year’s contract, so I asked the club for permission to move. I think it’s the best solution in this situation, especially since the club can still get me a fee. 

‘I would get the chance to take on a new challenge at another club for a few more years. That is my wish.’ 

“I said from the start that we should look for a solution that would be good for both sides. Bayern is one of the biggest clubs in the world, a dream club for many great players. I think it’s better for Bayern to invest the money they can get for me than to keep me until the end of my contract. I don’t want to force anything, that’s not the point. It’s about finding the best solution.”
