Inter midfielder Wesley Sneijder has admitted that he could, in future, play in the MLS.
The creative Dutch wizard insists he is happy with the Nerazzurri at present, but at some point he could be drawn to following the likes of Thierry Henry and David Beckham to the United States.
Sneijder has been persistently linked with the Inter exit door over the last two years, however he has firmly stayed put and he is eyeing at the very least seeing out his contract at the San Siro.
"At the very least I want to stay until the end of my contract, then if I still want to, maybe I could be captain?", Sneijder told Gazzetta dello Sport, adding "but [Javier] Zanetti is eternal".
The Holland international’s contract expires in 2015 and, after that time, the 28-year-old could be drawn to the MLS.
"It could be that in the future I will go to the MLS, but for now I am fine with the coach and I do not want to leave."
The 28-year-old is still rated as one of the finest attacking midfielders in Europe, despite a lacklustre 2011/12 campaign with Inter.
Sneijder has only played for two other clubs in addition to Inter: Ajax and Real Madrid. He has clocked up 87 caps for Holland.
