Cameroon international Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is reportedly considering leaving Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for Qatar, as per Sport Buzzer.

Choupo-Moting, whose contract runs until 2023, joined the Bundesliga giants on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain in 2020 as Robert Lewandowski’s back-up.

The 33-year-old Indomitable Lions star has featured 57 times for the Bavarians and scored 18 goals.
