Former AC Milan defender Alessandro Nesta has revealed he has yet to be offered the chance to continue his playing career in the United States, despite stating his desire to move there.
Nesta, 36, recently ended his ten-year association with Milan after his contract expired and it had been expected that an MLS club would come calling - with New York Red Bulls heavily tipped to sign him after the announcement that he would not be staying at the San Siro.
However, the veteran centre-back, who made 78 appearances for Italy during a distinguished career, has failed to drum up any interest in his services.
"I didn't get the chance to play in the MLS," Nesta told Goal.com. "I tried, but no club contacted me with an offer.
"For now, the only place where I want to play is on a beach."
There have been some suggestions that Nesta could still be given an opportunity to return to Milan on a one-year deal, though retirement seems to be a more likely option.
