The Brazilian full-back made a total of 266 appearances for the club, helping Bayern win six consecutive league titles, but he will depart with teammates Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben in the summer.

"The eight years have been wonderful, I've had some great moments here," he said in his press conference.

"The treble in 2013 was special. All things come to an end eventually. We are together every day and know each other so well - we are a family. The friendship we all have is the greatest thing."

One of those who will be heading out the Bayern door is Franck Ribery, who was clearly emotional as Rafinha announced his intentions to leave the Allianz.

The 36-year-old, surrounded by teammates Robert Lewandowski, Manuel Neuer and Thiago Alcantara, was in tears as his teammate spoke to the media.

It was an emotional one, to say the least.
