Bayern Munich head coach Carlo Ancelotti says Holger Badstuber will only leave on loan this month.
The defender has been linked with Manchester City and Swansea as well as Bundesliga side Schalke.
But, speaking from Bayern’s winter training camp in Doha, Ancelotti said any move away from Munich would not be permanent.
“I said if he decided to leave because he wanted to play we can deal with it for six months,” said the Italian.
“We can speak about this with him. There is no chance he will be sold.
“The idea of the club is to renew the contract. If he wants to go to play it will be to go on loan.”
