Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insists there are no contract restrictions on players over 30.
The club has rarely offered more than one-year deals to players over 30, and a precedent was set last week when 32-year-old Belgian defender Daniel van Buyten was handed a new two-year contract.
Captain Mark Van Bommel, also 32, only signed a one-year extension last year but is now set for further talks which Rummenigge describes as positive.
"These one-year contracts, like the one with Mark Van Bommel last year, are not a house rule," he said.
"Back then, Jurgen Klinsmann insisted on us buying Anatoliy Tymoschuk for the defensive midfield role so we were not sure whether Van Bommel still played a role under Klinsmann.
"That is why he got a one-year contract. There is nothing set in stone with us and you saw that last week with Daniel van Buyten extending for two years.
"I won't rule out Van Bommel being given a two-year contract.
"When I have spoken to him, I have not had the impression that the duration
(of the contract) is the primary aim.
"We will talk again soon and I am optimistic that we will find a solution."
The Bayern chairman is also confident that a new deal can be agreed for French attacker Franck Ribery, who has been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena.
"We wanted him to return and play first so the negotiations will not take place just yet," he added.
"We have a good relationship with Franck and have left it that he should first play and then talk.
"We will not put ourselves under any pressure. It was always our first option to extend his contract.
"It would be better for us if he signs a new deal and stays with FC Bayern. We have a good team already and of course it is the aim of all top players to win the Champions League.
"But we want to reach that goal on a sound financial basis and not like clubs in Spain, England or Italy.
"Ribery appreciates getting paid punctually on the first of every month."
