Germany's Michael Ballack, without a club after his release by Chelsea, is looking at a return to Germany and says he will decide on his future within two weeks.

"I will take my decision as quickly as possible, which means in the next two weeks", the 33-year-old, ruled out of the World Cup through injury and targetted by several clubs, told the Bild newspaper on Wednesday.

He has hinted that he would like to return to Germany after his stint in London and three Bundesliga clubs -- Hamburg, Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg -- have confirmed interest.

Liverpool and Tottenham in the Premiership and at least one Spanish outfit are also looking at the powerful midfielder, given a free transfer by Premiership champions Chelsea.

Beyer have already put a 13 million euros two-year contract on the table but 2009 champions Wolfsburg are reportedly ready to offer 19 million over two years including salary and bonuses.

The injured German captain vowed to play on for at least two more years at the highest level following his Chelsea exit.

He recently said he remained a "proud German" who was looking at "options back home."
