Bayern's Toni looking for new club in January

Luca Toni expects his future to be decided within a fortnight after confirming his time at Bayern Munich is all but over.

The Italy international is surplus to requirements at the Bundesliga club after falling out with coach Louis van Gaal and a return to Serie A is now firmly on the agenda.

The 32-year-old expects to be able to announce his destination before the end of the year, with Inter Milan and Roma both reportedly showing interest.

''Certainly I will be leaving Munich,'' he said on a visit to a supporters' club in South Tyrol. ''That will be decided in the next 10 days but I don't have any chances left here.''

Toni was sent back to his native Italy on a day when the whole Bayern squad participated in a different supporters' club's Christmas party, but he resisted the temptation to drive the extra hundred miles down the motorway to his family home in Modena.

''I am not going to keep driving south,'' he joked. ''I've got to go back to Munich and wind Van Gaal up a bit more.''

Despite a sour end to his two-and-a-half years at the club, Toni insists he will look back fondly on his time abroad.

''I will definitely be taking some beautiful memories back with me, particularly my first season with 39 goals in all competitions,'' he added in the Bild newspaper. ''It started to get a bit more difficult under (former manager) Jurgen Klinsmann, but now it is over, finished.''

When asked if he really believed there was no way back, he quipped: ''You have more chance of winning the lottery.''
