Bayern Munich midfielder Ze Roberto's future at the club is still very much up in the air as he is still pondering the one-year contract extension offered by the club.

"The chances stand at 50-50," the 34-year-old told Bild. "I will give my final answer at the end of April. If I'm still fit and remain injury-free, then I can play another two or three years at the top level in Europe."

In 2007, the versatile midfielder planned to return from Brazil and end his career with a second stint at Bayern, but he now is considering the club's one-year offer.

It is reported that there is interest coming from Brazil, Major League Soccerand the Middle East. Ze Roberto first joined Bayern back in 2002 before joining Santos in 2006.

However, after a year back in his homeland, he was brought back to Bavaria by Ottmar Hitzfeld and has shown that he is still the world-class player he was in his first stint.

Next season, however, will see the arrival of Anatoliy Tymoshchuk to add further competition for places in the Bayern midfield.
