BERLIN - Brazilian midfielder Ze Roberto has decided to leave Bayern Munich after they failed to offer him a two-year contract extension, the Bundesliga club said on Wednesday. "Ze was offered an extension until June 30, 2010, but unfortunately he did not accept it," Bayern general director Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said on the club website. The 34-year-old Brazilian played six years for the club, winning the championship and Cup double four times. He played from 2002-06 before returning in the 2007 after a brief spell back in Brazil with Santos. He also played for Bayer Leverkusen and Real Madrid, winning the Spanish championship in 2007. "My future will be decided in the next few days," he said. "Manchester City's interest is right at the top of the list. They want to get into Europe and I am want to help them get there. "There are also two Bundesliga sides interested in me. One of them is even offering me a three-year contract. There is also a team from Saudi Arabia and some US clubs interested." CITY FANS!
