Bayern Munich midfielder linked with Toon switch

34-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder Ze Roberto is said to be attracting interest from Newcastle United, according to reports.

The Brazilian midfielder, who is set to reject a one-year contract extension from the Munich-based club has reportedly caught the eye of several Premiership clubs, including United.

'I feel fine being at Munich and I will discuss the offer with my agent as well as with my wife,' he said.

'But I am at the top of my game actually and, honestly, a 12-month contract may not be long enough for me.'

Fulham, Wigan Athletic, and Hull City are all keen to offer the veteran midfielder a chance to ply his trade in English football - although, it has emerged that despite the banter in the popular press, Newcastle United will forgo the chance to sign the 34-year-old.
