MLS clubs have passed on the prospect of signing Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko.

The Mail on Sunday says Shevchenko's name has been circulated to several MLS clubs as the 31-year-old plans an escape route out of Stamford Bridge.

But embarrassingly for the one-time best striker in the world, no team have shown interest and one MLS boss warned last night: "Managers don't want has-beens who are looking to wind down their careers."
