Alessandro Nesta says he will leave AC Milan at the end of the season, and is considering a move to Major League Soccer in the United States.

The 36-year-old Nesta, who has spent 10 years at Milan, will play his last game for the club at home against Novara on Sunday. “This was my last season with Milan,” Nesta said at a news conference. “I’ve evaluated everything and the high pace of the Italian league, the Champions League and the Italian Cup means that I can’t play all the time. And I’m not one to sit and wait on the bench. I would very happily go to the US, it would be a good experience. It wouldn’t be bad to cross the ocean. But until I have signed, I’m not going to say anything. But there are no other good and important opportunities.”
