The talented Switzerland international forward has spent the last two seasons at the Allianz Arena, with Bayern having prevailed in the scramble for his signature back in 2012.

The 22-year-old faces stiff competition for places at the German champions, though, and was restricted to just 10 Bundesliga starts in the 2013/14 campaign.

Shaqiri acknowledges that he now has a big decision to make, with it possible that he may have to look elsewhere for regular game time.

A man who has been heavily linked with a switch to the Premier League in the past told 20 Minuten: "It's clear that I cannot continue like this. If nothing changes, I will have to make some changes myself.

"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."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
