The 36-year old midfielder looks almost certain to play on next season, even if it is not in Los Angeles, and Arena has indicated that he will be fine wherever he chooses to continue his career.
"David wants to play in every game and in every minute of every game. I had a word with him about that the other day but unfortunately I didn't have a crowbar with me!" the coach said.
"He has been a great signing for Galaxy, a great signing for the MLS and we would like him to stay longer. We will see, for David will do what he thinks is best for him at the end of the season."
