Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs has not ruled out the possibility that he will end his career in the MLS but has suggested he may be too old.

• Forum: Is MLS a good place to retire?

Giggs, 36, has been at United his entire career and is expected to walk away from the game when his current deal expires next season.

However, Giggs, who is currently taking part in United's five-game pre-season tour of North America, said he might consider a switch when asked about the possibility of playing in the USA.

"Being in America you have a great lifestyle, good for raising a family," Giggs told USA Today. "The play is getting better. I still have a year left with Manchester United. After that maybe. May be I will be too old."

United's tour begins with a match against Celtic in Toronto on Friday night before further tour matches against Philadelphia Union, Kansas City Wizards, the MLS All-Stars and Chivas Guadalajara.

Giggs, who has made 838 appearances for United, scoring 155 goals, knows the team faces some stern tests in the coming weeks.

He said: "MLS has grown and the success of the USA in the World Cup can only have helped football. We want to get our fitness. It is a good opportunity to get our rhythm against good competition."
