Defensive midfielder Anatoliy Tymoshchuk’s future at German giants Bayern Munich remains uncertain with only one year remaining on his current deal.
The Ukrainian joined the Bavarians in 2009 from Zenit St. Petersburg, penning a three-year deal at the club. The player then signed an extension which tied him to Bayern Munich until 2013.
But with no sign that the Bundesliga giants are ready to offer an extension again to the 33-year-old, Tymoshchuk is not quite sure where his future lies for next season.
He spoke to Kicker in an interview about his dilemma and said, “Maybe I will stay in Munich [for another year], I do not really know this right now."
According to the Ukrainian defensive midfielder, he has a number of offers from Russia but has not come to a decision on what to do.
Moreover, the player’s agent has also been talking in recent weeks about contact with several major Italian clubs including AC Milan and Napoli. However, no official from any of the clubs has come out to confirm or deny the claims of Tymoshchuk’s agent.
It seems that Bayern Munich are waiting to see if their interest in Athletic Bilbao man Javi Martinez can materialise into a swoop for the Spaniard.
If the Bavarians are successful in signing Martinez then Tymoshchuk may be dispensed with this summer, while if the club fail then the Ukrainian international’s prospects look brighter.
