There remains debate among Bayern Munich supporters on where Javi Martinez needs to be playing on the field. Pep Guardiola has shown no hesitation in deploying him at centerback or central midfield, and Javi always puts together a solid performance no matter where he's playing.

However, if there's one thing that all Bayern fans can agree on, it's the fact that Martinez should remain in Munich for a long time. And now, Martinez is prepared to extend his stay in Munich.

"I would love to sign a new contract with Bayern if the people in charge are interested in keeping me here," Javi said in an interview with Sport Bild (translated by "I am feeling very well at the club Bayern and in the city of Munich. I'd say that there is not a better place in the world for a footballer than Bayern Munich."

Martinez currently has a contract that runs until 2017, so it's likely that we'll see Bayern act soon to lock Javi up long term. As long as his health can hold up, Javi is the type of player that can make-or-break Bayern's season as they target another Champions League title.
