Cape Town - Pablo Zabaleta is about to bring his Manchester City career to and end, but could still be playing in the Premier League next season.

The 32-year-old defender, who joined City from Espanyol in 2008, revealed he is considering a number of offers, some of them coming from clubs in England.

"I have a few offers from teams in the Premier League, some offers from abroad. I am just thinking what is the best for me and my family," the Argentine was quoted by FourFourTwo.

"I have been in England for so many years. I am happy and I enjoy playing in the Premier League. We will see. I have offers from different countries.

The Premier League is the greatest competition in the world. I have been playing here for so many years and that is my feeling. We will see what happens at the end of the season."

In his trophy-laden spell in England, Zabaleta has become a legend at City, and he admitted that while it would be difficult playing for another team, it was something he had to do.

"It will be tough not to play for this shirt any more, but I think it is the right thing to do. It is time to move on. I will try to play a couple more years," he added.

Having played in front of the Etihad Stadium crowd for the last time, Zabaleta will don the shirt one more time when the Citizens face Watford on Sunday as they seek to secure third place in the league.

Kick off is at 16:00.
