Nesta: I want to play out my career at AC Milan

He said: “I have already made it clear to Milan that I want to return to action and finish my career here. I don’t know how many more years I will be able to play for, but I will do so here for as long as I can.

“After I recover my best condition, we will sit down and talk about a new contract. Rome is my home, but Milan have given a lot to me and I want to end my career here.

“Renewing a contract with an injured player would not be a good investment for a club, that is why I want to play as soon as possible.”
