Treble winner Diego Contento is looking for a new club.
He keeps fit in the district league.
He does not rule out a return to Bayern Munich.
- "The overall package has to be right.
It doesn't matter whether it's in the first, second or third league," Diego Contento describes
the requirements profile for his new club in an interview with
FC Bayern Munich's homegrown player has been without a contract since last summer.

That should change for the new season.
"I am open for everything.
A year without playing football and just watching it on TV is enough,” says Contento.
Diego Contento: Return to Bayern?
- "Is an option"
The triple winner was not idle last year.
In addition to individual training, the 32-year-old kept fit in the district league at FC Aschheim.
His brothers Vincento, Domenico and Alessandro play there.
"It's nice to play with my brothers.
I also received many inquiries from Munich.
But I can only imagine that in five to six years,” explains the left-footed player.
The amateur sector is not an issue at the moment.
Contento's goal is to play at the top again.
When asked about a return to Bayern as a leader in the second team, the Munich player is not averse.
"That would also be an option," says Contento.
Appropriately, the current routiners Maxi Welzmüller and Nico Feldhahn are leaving the amateurs.
However, it is more likely that Martín Demichelis' team will start the coming season with a very young squad.
However, Timo Kern will stay with the team.
Diego Contento: Just not to TSV 1860
Another option is for Contento Italy.
After all, his family is from Naples.
"Of course it's a dream to play in Serie A or B.
At the age of 30 you are still considered a talent there,” explains the defensive specialist with a laugh.
So it is still completely open where Contento will go.
He only rules out one thing, a move to TSV 1860. "Mia san mia.
There's nothing more to say about it," explains the three-time German champion.
