"The option expired and we haven't activated it," Rummenigge told Der Spiegel (via Goal.com).

"We're going to plan our squad for next season and we'll see if he still has a role to play with us or not," he added.

The Brazilian international has made 32 appearances for Bayern this season, racking up nine goals and eight assists.
