The Switzerland international will move on from Juventus ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, and Borussia Dortmund - in addition to a number of Chinese clubs - have been linked with the wing-back.
However, Lichtsteiner has revealed that talks with Dortmund have ended, and the 34-year-old will also not be making the move to China because he 'does not need to chase money'.
"I'm definitely not going to China. I don't chase money and I need a certain quality of life in my next move. My wife and my children need to feel good, which wouldn't be the case in China. And I don't need more money," Lichtsteiner told Blick.
"I'm not going to BVB. We couldn't come to an agreement. There's nothing more to say about that."
Lichtsteiner has won seven Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia crowns during his time at Juventus.
