In his podcast Einfach Mal Luppen, he declared, “This season is my last.” “I’m positive that this is the right choice for me. I’ve been debating what to do for several months, and while there are advantages and disadvantages as there always are, I’m confident that this is what I want to do.

“I’ve always wanted to leave this club in the greatest possible way, and this is a terrific time to do so because this is one of my best seasons to date. I’m leaving football when I leave Madrid. That is the course of events. I’m going to represent Germany in the European Championship, but I’ve never given thought to switching teams.

“I’ve felt at home in the club, in Spain, and here in Madrid because of the support I’ve received over the last ten years, which makes this club and its fans special.”
