Former Roma striker Marco Delvecchio will give himself until January to find a new club before retiring.
"There are two clubs interested, but neither are Italian. There has been no contract within Italy, but there is still time."
In his 16-year career, Delvecchio has never played outside Serie A and has no intention of dropping into calcio's basement.
"At the end of October teams generally tend to look for reinforcements, but if he doesn't get the right offer as a player, he will become a Coach. The January market is the last chance."
