"It is also clear that I do not want to be number three next season. I will try to find a new club," said the 31-year-old at Sport1 after Bayern alongside captain Manuel Neuer and Schalke keeper Alexander Nübel (23) from summer.
Manuel Neuer wants to captain Bayern Munich until 2023 and is hoping to lead them out in a home Champions League final at the Allianz Arena in 2022.
The Bayern goalkeeper and skipper on Wednesday signed an extension to a contract that was due to expire at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
He is now tied to Bayern until 2023, though he will have added competition from next season when Alexander Nubel will join from Neuer's former club Schalke.
However, Neuer clearly has designs on retaining his place as number one between the posts and wants to keep the armband for the duration of his deal.
Bayern Munich: Coman on the bench against Union Berlin
Frenchman Kingsley Coman is only a replacement for the Bayern Munich team which will challenge the Union Berlin at 6 p.m. this Sunday. The Bundesliga returns to business and after the successful return of Borussia Dortmund, who atomized Schalke in the Ruhr derby on Saturday, it is the turn of Bayern Munich to enter the arena this Sunday . The Munich club is opposed to the Union Berlin for this 26th lifting of the German Championship.
"I am convinced by our team and the whole club and I am sure we will be playing successful football throughout the coming years," he told club media.
"Of course, we have some goals we can reach within this current season. We have a good team for the next few years and it is a lot of fun working for FC Bayern, also as captain. This is also my job and I want to continue until 2023."
Bayern lead the Bundesliga - which resumed last weekend having been suspended since March because of the coronavirus pandemic - by four points. They are also in the DFB-Pokal semi-finals and hold a 3-0 lead over Chelsea from the first leg in the Champions League last 16.
Neuer is hopeful Bayern can complete the treble and has an eye on May 2022, when the Champions League final comes to his home stadium 10 years after their penalty shoot-out defeat to Chelsea on the same stage at the same venue.
"You start every year from the beginning of course wanting to win it all. There is now the championship to win this year and we are still in every competition," he added. "But right now it is a different situation for us and everyone has to adjust to the current situation, not only us football players.
"One of our big goals for the next few years is definitely having the chance to play a home Champions League final, like we did in 2012. 2022 will be another European final in Munich, which is a great incentive for me and the whole team.
"It would be a dream for us all to be able to reach this final at home."
