Michael Ballack: Could leave Leverkusen

The former Chelsea star and ex-Germany captain will be out of contract in the summer of 2012 and has been linked with a move to the MLS.

Ballack has said he wants to continue to play at a high level, but Voller fears this will not be at BayArena.

Voller told Sky Deutschland television regarding the midfielder: "At this moment, the trend is he will leave our club come the end of the season.

"I am not expecting this, but things seem to go this way."
