Bayern Munich defender Javi Martinez, who won the treble twice, at the end of the season when his deal expires out is “scheduled to leave” the German champions.
Reports from Flashywap that Martinez chose to remain for this campaign after discussions with coach Hansi Flick,
but is unlikely to do so after June, claiming that before retiring, he wished to enjoy a new experience.
Since 2012, the 32-year-old veteran international from Spain has been at Bayern but was scheduled to leave before the season after missing his starting position during their 2020 five-title run.
This is not the right time to discuss over what will take place in 2021 by June. Anything can happen.
I had successful seasons here and we’ll see what takes place,” Martinez said on Tuesday before the Champions League match at Atletico Madrid.

I would like to start something different before I finish my profession, no matter where, but something unique.
“It says the deal is the last year. I’m glad to be here right now and I’m part of the team, and that is the most important thing to consider.
Martinez actually liked a trophy-laden Bayern spell, winning, among several other trophies, eight Bundesliga titles,
two Champions League crowns, five German Cups and a Club World Cup (which might become two if Bayern emerged winners of the FIFA club world cup in 2021)
