Croatia international Danijel Pranjic has revealed he is on the verge of leaving Bayern Munich to sign for a Chinese club.

Pranjic, 30, joined Bayern from Heerenveen in 2009 on a three-year deal but now appears certain to depart following the Champions League final against Chelsea later this month.

Pranjic declined to name the club in question but told Sportske Novosti: "I got an offer from China that was truly impossible to refuse. The offer is startling in a financial sense. It is unbelievable. The money is really great.

"I haven't signed it yet. I have to talk with my family, primarily my beautiful wife, but honestly I'm on the verge of making the decision to sign for a Chinese club. I have pretty much decided because, as I said, it's an offer that can't be refused. I believe I will sign the contract."

He added: "After the Champions League final, the owner of the club will send a private plane so that I can immediately transfer to China. Before that, I'll undergo a medical in Munich."
