His future has motivated a lot of speculation in the last months. Now Michael Ballack is in advanced negotiations to play for Chelsea FC, according to his agent Michael Becker.

He disagrees with Uli Hoeness, who said that Ballack was primarily interested in money. Becker told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that Bayern actually treated the player unfairly in their talks to extend his contract.

"I can tell that cash is not the issue in the price category that Michael is in. He will be making a decision based on sporting considerations. We are in serious negotiations wiht Chelsea."

The midfielders's contract at Bayern Munich endsthis season. The midfielder has rejected a reported offer of 36 million euros to sign a new deal with the German champions.
