Ex-Chelsea star Michael Ballack is being linked with a move to MLS outfit New York Red Bulls.

The Bayer Leverkusen has made just nine appearances for the German Bundesliga outfit since his summer move from Chelsea and reports have begun to emerge about his future in the west of Germany.

German website Express.de reported that the German international may move this summer to New York.

'In the United States there has already speculation that the internationally popular superstar will move in the summer to the New York Metro Stars (Red Bulls),' the translated report said.

Ballack has been an absolute star of the game throughout his career in Europe with Chemnitzer, Kaiserslautern, Leverkusen, Bayern Munich and Chelsea but could now end his playing days in the USA if reports are correct.
