Lucio ends Spain transfer considerations

Munich  - Bayern Munich defender Lucio no longer toys with a move to Spain and will stay at the German Bundesliga top club, the Sport Bild weekly reported in its Wednesday edition.

"There is no reason to leave. I will stay at Bayern," said the 29- year-old Brazilian.

Lucio had earlier this year considered a move to Spain, but that was swiftly vetoed by Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who said that Munich had no intention to release him out of his contract until 2010.

"He is a very good player and we don't let such players go," said Rummenigge. (dpa)
