He wrote in theMail on Sunday: "I'm also considering being part of a new football competition in India. They wanted a marquee player to boost the league and I said I'm happy to help because it's a huge continent and they are huge fans of sport.
"They've done very well with cricket and they wanted to produce that with football. I thought why not? It will only be a three-month tournament so I said I'd think about it. It's a good intermediary between stopping football and trying to help other players.
"In a few months we'll have more news and maybe more key players will be involved. They're still in the building process."
