Shaqiri hints at Bayern Munich exit

The versatile attacker has admitted that he might have to leave the Bundesliga champions in order to get more playing time elsewhere and is keen on a move to the Premier League
Xherdan Shaqiri has voiced his dismay with his lack of regular first-team action at Bayern Munich and has hinted at a summer switch to England.

The Switzerland international made just 10 Bundesliga starts in 2013-14 and he has made it clear that he might have to move on if his playing situation does not improve next term.

"It's clear that I cannot continue like this. If nothing changes, I will have to make some changes myself ..." Shaqiri told 20 Minuten.

"I want to play in the important games as well and not just in the Bundesliga. I don't want to go through another year like this.

"I only want to play for a major club. The Champions League is important to me. We will see what happens.

"England would be an option. If I were to leave Bayern, it will be for a foreign club. But it will have to be a club challenging for the title."

Shaqiri, 22, has a contract with Bayern until June 2016.
