Esteban Cambiasso could make MLS switch after rejecting West Ham – report

Esteban Cambiasso’s next move is still no clearer. His contract with Leicester City has expired, and although the Foxes are trying to resign their 2014-15 Player of the Year, interest from other clubs has inevitably arrived.

West Ham were keen to acquire the former Inter Milan star but Cambiasso has turned down a contract offer from the Hammers, with a possible MLS switch on the agenda, according to David Amoyal.

Retirement is still a real possibility for the 34-year-old midfielder but a move to Major League Soccer would likely see him pick up a Designated Player contract, and therefore a nice pay packet before hanging up his boots.

The Argentine could follow fellow central midfield veterans Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard to MLS this summer, with Andrea Pirlo also strongly linked with a move to NYCFC.

It’s unclear at this point whether any clubs have made a formal approach for the former Real Madrid man, but with his future very much up in the air, anything could happen.

Would Esteban Cambiasso be a good signing for an MLS club? Which team needs him?
