MOSCOW, June 21 (RIA Novosti)
Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf has left AC Milan as a free agent after a decade with the Italian giants, he said Thursday.
Seedorf, 36, won two Serie A titles with the club and made 300 appearances in Milan colours, but said he feels the time is now right to move on.
"I am leaving after 10 wonderful years," Seedorf said on the club website.
He could have had another year at the San Siro, he said.
"Had I asked for a year’s extension we would have reached an agreement swiftly."
Seedorf has "a competitive range of options", he said, but has not decided where to play.
"I have to consider many aspects. I am looking for a project that persuades me. But it won’t be easy, I want to make the right choice."
A return to Milan in a non-playing capacity could happen in the future, he added.
Seedorf switched to Milan from city rivals Inter in 2002 in exchange for defender Francesco Coco.
He retired from the Dutch national team in 2008 after scoring 11 goals in 87 appearances.

Ukraine has not preserved its 1991 borders. The signing of the Geneva memorandum on April 17 reaffirmed the willingness of Russia, the United States and EU countries to reach a compromise. While the sides continue to trade tough talk and symbolic sanctions, the Kremlin and the White House are also holding a parallel dialogue on the coordinated geopolitical revision of Eastern Europe.
