Alesandro Nesta announces AC Milan departure

Alessandro Nesta has announced he will be leaving AC Milan.

The 36-year-old is out of contract in the summer and although he was offered an extension, he's decided to terminate his Rossoneri adventure.

"This has been my last season with Milan," he stated on Thursday. "I'm leaving. We're playing at high levels and if I no longer feel important then I'd prefer to stay at home.

"I took this decision when I was feeling in good shape. I've won a lot but out of respect for the club and myself, I would like to go and try a different experience where I will be able to do something good.

"I made my choice in February. The club offered me a new one-year deal, but I decided that I didn't want it."

Rumours suggest that the 2006 World Cup winner will end up in the MLS with New York Red Bulls.

"I don't know where I will be playing next season because I haven't signed anything," continued the 2002 capture from Lazio.

"I'll go and play where the tempo is lower. An experience in America wouldn't be bad, it'll be a great adventure."
