Arsenal midfielder Gilberto admits he sees cannot currently 'see any future' for himself with the Gunners after losing his place in the first team this season.
The Brazil captain has started just five times in the Premier League for Arsene Wenger's side this term as Mathieu Flamini and Cesc Fabregas have monopolised the central midfield berths.
And Gilberto, 31, insists he will look to move elsewhere in the summer if he cannot oust his younger rivals.
'At the moment I cannot see any future for me at the club,' he told The Guardian.
'I will see what will happen in the next few months and until the end [of the season], if I will get the chance to come back in the team. If not, I will see what I am going to do at the end.
'It's been painful for me and to stay another season like this would kill me. I will sit down with Arsene and see what we can do to manage the situation.'
He added: 'I am not happy in the position I am in but I am trying to manage the situation.
'I am very calm and I'm being professional as I've always been. We'll see at the end of the season what is going to happen.'
