Chelsea´s veteran midfielder Claude Makelele would consider joining David Beckham in America after admitting his future at Stamford Bridge remains uncertain.

The France international, 34, still has one year of his contract remaining at Chelsea but has revealed one of the options under consideration is to follow Beckham into Major League Soccer in America.

Makelele was inspirational in helping Chelsea to win Barclays Premiership titles in 2005 and 2006 but told Telefoot: "I have not decided where I will play next season. I could remain with Chelsea, as I am under contract for next season. The United States is an option. It wouldn´t prevent me from playing for France, ask the coach."
