Toni could leave Bayern for first team football

Luca Toni has not ruled out leaving Bayern Munich this season if he is not guaranteed playing time.

The Italy international has sat out Bayern's opening four Bundesliga games with a tendinitis problem but expects to be a starter in Louis van Gaal's side when he returns to fitness.

"With Van Gaal there is a particular rapport,'' said Toni. "If I am not given any playing time I will speak to the club, that declared me not transferable this summer, to understand what my future is.''

The 32-year-old striker was linked with a move away from the Bundesliga giants following the arrival of summer signings Mario Gomez and Ivica Olic to the Allianz Arena.

Earlier this summer, Toni was sent to train with Bayern's reserves after his level of fitness failed to impress Van Gaal. However, Toni is eager to get back on the pitch and deliver.

"There's a World Cup in a year's time and a title to be defended and I don't want to miss that chance,'' said Toni. "I hope to return to play as soon as possible.''

Toni has scored over 38 goals since his €11m transfer move to Bayern in 2007 from Fiorentina and finished as the leading scorer for his club with 14 goals in 25 league appearances.
