Bayern Munich defender Martin Demichelis claims he is set to join Malaga when the transfer window opens.
The Argentine international has dropped down the pecking order at Bayern this season and he is keen on a move away in search of regular first-team football.
Demichelis is set to join Malaga initially on loan with the move becoming permanent if the Primera Liga side stay up this season.
"Yes, it's a done deal," Demichelis told Bild. "I've already said goodbye .... in the dressing room.
"It was seven unforgettable years."
