Corentin Tolisso, Philippe Coutinho, Jerome Boateng, Javi Martinez, Sven Ulreich and Ron-Thorben Hoffmann are all expected to leave Bayern München at the end of the season, according to Sport Bild.
Tolisso has struggled to make the impact expected of him at Allianz Arena following his €41.5 million move from Olympique Lyon in 2017 and is said to be unhappy about his current substitute role.
Philippe Coutinho will probably be returning to FC Barcelona in the summer, with Bayern looking unlikely to trigger the €125 million purchase option in the loan deal to tie the midfielder down to a permanent contract.
In the near future, Bayern are set to hold contract talks with Manuel Neuer, David Alaba, Thomas Müller, Thiago Alcantara, Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez, who are all out of contract in 2021, about their future at the club. And out of those six, Boateng and Martinez are looking most likely to leave.
Boateng has been linked with an exit for a while and will probably finally say goodbye to Bayern in the summer. The German champions will probably cash in on Javi Martinez as well as the 31-year-old probably won't be offered a new deal.
Finally, Sven Ulreich and Ron-Thorben Hoffmann should leave as their chances of playing time will look increasingly unlikely when Alex Nübel joins Bayern from Schalke 04 in the summer.
