Kaka has ruled out rejoining the AC Milan while the Serie A season is still in progress but admits China could be his next destination if he plays on.
The 35-year-old Brazilian is a free agent after leaving Orlando City in October and, following his departure from MLS, reports in Italy have suggested he could embark on a third spell with Milan.
He told calciomercato.com: “I want to make a decision with a calm mind, and I will make it by the end of December. I must also decide if I want to keep playing at all or take a role off the pitch.
“I was in Milan with the president of a Chinese club and we were just talking about my options. But before deciding on which club I might join I must first decide whether or not I will play again.”
On Milan, he added: “I do not like talking about clubs that are in the middle of a campaign, we’ll see where they finish.
“A lot has been invested in the club and some decisions they have made will need time to manifest.”
