Bayern have announced that they will not prolong the contract with Holger Badstuber.
Prior to joining Bundesliga rivals Schalke on loan in January, 'ESPN FC' claims that Manchester City were interested in acquiring Badstuber's services to link up with his former boss Pep Guardiola.
Swansea City manager Paul Clement, Carlo Ancelotti's former assistant at Bayern, also said he "could do a good job" in the Premier League.
Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a statement on the club website: "It was clear from the start that following his loan spell with Schalke 04, Holger Badstuber would seek to gain new experience elsewhere, probably abroad."
Badstuber, 28, has suffered five serious injuries since 2012, but has battled back to full fitness. He vowed to make this "his last ever comeback" when returning to first-team action after a break of 259 days in late-October.
