Italy defender Massimo Oddo is keen to turn his loan move to Bayern Munich into a permanent stay.
The 32-year-old was loaned from AC Milan last August and has since made 12 Bundesliga and five UEFA Champions League appearances for the German outfit.
Oddo, a member of Italy's World Cup-winning team in 2006, said on Friday that he is was happy to stay in Munich.
"My loan comes to an end this summer," he said. "I feel very good at Bayern and I could easily imagine myself staying in Munich.
"But it's not me who'll take that decision, but the club and management."
Bayern general manager Uli Hoeness has said that the club has until the "end of March, early April" to exercise its right to buy the defender's contract.
