“I’m leaving because I feel the club no longer has the faith in me I need, and doesn’t offer me the support to build something in the medium or long term,” the Frenchman wrote in the letter published in the sports daily AS.

The versatile 28-year-old had been linked with Europe’s top clubs after announcing in February he would leave Bayern at the end of his contract this summer, having turned down several offers of new terms.

The French boss – a three-time Champions League winner with Los Blancos – was in his second spell at the club having secured the La Liga title in last season’s restarted top flight

The 33-year-old has not played for France since October 2015, but is now set to line up alongside World Cup winners Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann at the delayed European Championship, which gets underway on June 11.

The Frenchman has remained tight-lipped on whether he will remain in charge of Los Blancos, although he was recently forced to deny reports claiming that he had told his players he was set to leave this summer.

The 28-year-old has already confirmed that he will be leaving the German giants at the end of the season, ending a 13-year stay at the Allianz Arena, which has included two Champions League triumphs.
