Eric Abidal has claimed that Pep Guardiola is keen to sign him for Bayern Munich after it was confirmed he would leave Barcelona.
The Frenchman recovered from a liver transplant to return to first-team action in April, coming off the bench during the Catalan outfit's 5-0 win over Mallorca.
However, Barcelona have opted against renewing the 33-year-old's contract, and he is now considering his options.
"Guardiola knows my situation and he would be delighted to have me on his team," Abidal told French football programme Telefoot.
"But the director and the chairman of Bayern have their words on the matter too.
"I would be pleased to join Bayern. I have a very good relationship with Franck Ribery. Bayern is among the best in Europe. Everything is possible. Do I have a preference? I don't. But Bayern would be good."
The France international also admitted he would consider a return to Ligue 1, with Monaco thought to be interested in his services.
"I don't know where I'll play next season yet," he added.
"But the most important thing is to have options such as Monaco. This is a move that would allow me to go full circle in my career."
