When announcing his departure from LA Galaxy, Robbie Keane said that he felt as 'fit and sharp as ever' - there was one more major challenge in his legs.
Where exactly that will be has been the subject of speculation over the last month as Keane mulls over his options.
A return home to Ireland to finish out his days like Damien Duff with Shamrock Rovers was mooted, though not a runner according to Keane's wife Claudine.
There was also talk of a move to Australia, where fellow Irish internationals such as Liam Miller and Andy Keogh have previously pitched up.
Brisbane Roar and Western Sydney Wanderers were too clubs, in particular, expressing interest.
Sydney manager Tony Popovic, a former Crystal Palace player, said:
He’s had a fantastic career, he’s a great player and still scoring goals, so he’s certainly a player we’d have a look at.
According to Owen Cowzer in today's Irish Sun, a move Down Under for the 36-year-old will not happen. Keane has turned down offers from both the Brisbane and Sydney clubs which would have made him the league's highest paid player.
Continuing his stay in the US is apparently what Keane wants.
Colorado Rapids, where Kevin Doyle currently plays, are interested as are Vancouver Whitecaps and new franchises Minnesota United and Atlanta United, both of whom will make their debut MLS seasons in 2017.
