Corentin Tolisso has said that he will leave Bayern Munich at the end of his contract on June 30.
The midfielder joined Die Roten in 2017 from Lyon. He went on to play 118 times for the club and score 21 goals. Tolisso would also help Bayern win the Champions League in 2020 and the Bundesliga each of the five years he was there.

Tolisso’s contract ends next month, and it has been thought for a long time that he would move on in the summer. On Monday, the Frenchman finally confirmed his departure on social media.
He wrote, “A new page has been turned.”
“A big thank you for these five wonderful years that have helped me grow so much in sports and in life. I hope that Bayern Munich will do well in the years to come.”
This summer, Bayern will lose more than just Tolisso. Robert Lewandowski, a star striker, is also expected to leave after he and the club had a fight over a new contract.
Lewandowski recently said something shocking when he said he doesn’t see himself playing for Bayern again. Barcelona is one of the clubs that want to sign him.
Serge Gnabry’s future is also unclear, but Sadio Mane, who has been strongly linked to the Bundesliga giants, could replace him.
