Speaking with Corriere della Sera, Cassano says he's still interested in playing on.
“The things I did wrong I paid for [in my career], that's how it should be," Cassano said.
“I want to know whether I can still make it. It needs a President and a Coach who have 100 per cent belief in me. Otherwise, I will leave it be.
“However, if I do find it, I'll be ready. I'll sign for free, I have already earned enough money."
Cassano categorically ruled out movng the the Far East, insisting anyone who goes to China does so purely for financial reasons.
“Going to China? Stupid. For me everyone is free to do what they want.
“But whoever goes to play in China should admit they are doing it for the money.
“I don't even remember the name of the team who want to sign me."
