Donovan, 30, has plied his trade at LA Galaxy since 2005, after joining the club from Bayer Leverkusen.

The America international has made 189 appearances for the MLS club while he has 143 caps to his name.

With his contract due to expire at the end of the 2013 season, Donovan admits he could retire from professional football next year.

"Why wouldn't I [consider retirement]?" he told "At the end of this season, I'm going to re-evaluate everything and see how I feel.

"If I want to keep playing, I'll keep playing. If I don't want to keep playing, I won't keep playing. If I want to go elsewhere, I'll try to make that happen.

"If I want to stay here, I'll try to make that happen. I don't know the answer to that right now."
