London, May 12 (ANI): German football star and skipper Michael Ballack wants a new Chelsea contract sorted out before next month's FIFA World Cup.
According to The Sun, Ballack, 33, is a free agent this summer and is seeking a two-year deal rather than the 12 months the club plan to offer him.
Ballack will fly out to join the German squad at their training camp in Sicily straight after Saturday's FA Cup final against Portsmouth.
He said: "Roman Abramovich will only hold contract discussions once the season is over. I have to accept that but everything is becoming rather tight in terms of time." (ANI)
