Bayern Munich midfielder Michael Ballack wil reveal the identity of his next club before the World Cup finals, which start on 9 June.

Ballack, 29, is out of contract in the summer and is expected to join Premier League champions Chelsea next season.

“I will talk about my next club just before the World Cup,” said Ballack.

In April, Balllack admitted he has been discussing terms with Chelsea.

“There have been serious talks,” he said at the time. “Nothing has been signed yet but I know what I want.

“I always wanted to play abroad at some stage. This is the last chance for me to do this.”
