Inter Milan midfielder Luis Figo has admitted that he is not finished with soccer yet, just days after hinting that he would retire from the game at the end of the season.

The Portuguese winger claimed winning the Scudetto with the Nerazzurri was a fine chance to wave goodbye to calcio. At 36, coach Jose Mourinho has not offered him a new deal and his current contract expires in June. However, it seems like Figo is ready for a fresh challenge and he has suggested that he will put his retirement on hold.

"I am ready to consider offers from American clubs or Japanese sides," the midfielder told Chinese daily Titan Sports. "Also offers from China, why not? I would be really happy to try this experience."

The Nerazzurri won their fourth consecutive Scudetto with two games remaining last weekend. Figo has played occasionally this season, but he has not been part of Mourinho's plans, often coming on as a substitute.
