Boateng, Sanches to stay at Bayern: Ancelotti

Bayern Munich defender Holger Badstuber will leave the Bundesliga champions at the end of the current season, the club announced on Friday.

With just two matches remaining in Bayern's campaign, the midfielder has so far been restricted to 25 appearances in all competitions under Carlo Ancelotti.

The centre-back may have failed to make an impact in the Premier League in his initial spell when he was at Manchester City, but Boateng is, without doubt, one of the best in his position in the world.

"He does not understand my decisions when I'm referee in training, but I'm sure I'm the best referee at Bayern", Ancelotti joked.

"It was clear from the start that Holger Badstuber, after his loan spell at Schalke, would seek a new experience most likely overseas", said Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The Germany worldwide was sent out on loan to Schalke in January until the end of the season and several reports claimed the defender had signed a contract extension at Allianz-Arena until 2018 before making the temporary switch.

Holger Badstuber has spent the second half of the season on loan at Schalke.

The defender may be 28 years of age, but the Germany global would be the flawless signing for Spurs in the summer transfer window. "Therefore Bayern Munich wishes Holger Badstuber all the best and would like to thank him for his exemplary commitment during nearly 15 years at Säbener Straße".

"Boateng has had a hard season, he was injured a lot", he told a news conference ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga contest with RB Leipzig. However, a 3-0 defeat in Munich left Leipzig three points behind - a gap the East German side has never been able to bridge.

Martinez broke his collarbone hiking in the mountains in Spain on Sunday, while Hummels is "tired and still has a minor problem", Ancelotti said.
