Former Arsenal and Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre is keen to explore the prospect of playing in India.

Silvestre, 35, is in talks with FC Dodsal.
The Mumbai club - owned by the wealthy conglomerate Dodsal Group which is based in Dubai - was formed only a few months ago.

A source told the Times of India: "Silvestre was to try out for some clubs in the UAE when someone mentioned the chance of playing in India. He warmed up to the prospect of playing in a country he knows little about."
