The midfielder’s contract at Alianz Arena is due to expire in June, and he is set to leave the German giants having not been offered a new deal.
The return to Russian Premier League looks the most likely option at the moment, especially given that Rubin Kazan are prepared to offer Tymoshchuk a bumper deal.
Izvestia has learned that Rubin are readying a three-year contract worth €2.5 million per campaign, which is a remarkable offer for a player nearing the end of his playing career.
The Tatarstan club officials believe the Ukrainian still has few good years ahead of him and they are prepared to take a gamble by signing him on a Bosman deal in the summer.
Prior to joining Bayern Munich, Tymoshchuk spent two and a half years at Zenit, making 67 league appearances for the club and scoring 10 goals.
