Nesta to leave AC Milan, ponders move to MLS

Thursday - 5/10/2012, 8:33am  ET

MILAN (AP) - Alessandro Nesta says he will leave AC Milan at the end of the season and consider a move to Major League Soccer.

Nesta has spent 10 years at Milan but, at age 36, says "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."

Nesta insists he has not signed with any club but adds that he would "very happily" join the MLS.

Nesta helped Milan to two Serie A titles and two Champions League trophies. The defender also won the World Cup with Italy in 2006.

He spent nine seasons with Lazio and also won the league with the Rome club.
