Socceroos superstar Tim Cahill believes he could play for up to another three years and admits Asia and Italy are “intriguing” destinations for him.
Cahill is currently tearing up the MLS with the New York Red Bulls, where he has another year to run on his contract.
He was in action on Monday morning (AEST) for the Red Bulls, substituted in the final minute of their 2-0 defeat to DC United.
The former EPL star has been named in the Socceroos' squad for the friendly with Belgium later this week.
The 34-year-old is pumped up for January’s Asian Cup with the Socceroos in Australia before it will be time to decide the next – and possibly final – step in his glittering career.
“Business-wise and football-wise, I couldn’t be happier and I’m lucky to have built a beautiful lifestyle in New Jersey and New York,’’ Cahill told the Daily Telegraph.
“For me the biggest decision will be after the next two years. When you’ve lived in London, Manchester, Sydney and New York, it’s exciting.
“I am definitely intrigued by Asia and Italy and other cities in America. I’ve got another good two to three years maybe of playing.”
The Socceroos’ superstar goal-scorer is also making his mark in the fashion industry.
He has a new line of clothing with brand Shoreditch, which will be released internationally in early 2015.
“It’s not just a quick T-shirt or a jacket, this will go on for years,’’ Cahill said.
“For the last eight years I had a relationship with Armani and I like to look sharp but I prefer to underdress than overdress.”
