Bayern Munich stopper Daniel Van Buyten has admitted that he is open to a possibility of joining Monaco at the end of the season.
The Belgian’s contract at Alianz Arena is due to expire in June and there is every chance that he will be leaving the club in the summer.
Van Buyten, who spent three years at Marseille between 2002 and 2004, admits that a return to France is an option.
“Why not return to France?,” he told Telefoot. “There are interesting options like Monaco.”
French giants Monaco look set to return to the top flight seeing they are five points clear at the top of Ligue 1 with seven games to go.
The club have a very ambitious project in place and they plan to sign a number of high-profile players in the summer transfer window, with Van Buyten just one of the footballer they are looking at.
Although not normally considered a first team regular at Alianz Arena, the veteran defender has been featuring for the Bavarians on regular basis since starting centre-back Holger Badstuber picked up an injury.
