Keisuke Honda took part in his last game against Japan last month at the World Cup, but the former Milan player said he would like to add a charming touch to his international career by participating in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
The 32-year-old, who scored 37 goals in 98 games for the national team, the only Japanese player to score in three World Cups, told Abima television that he was not ready to quit now.
“I hope to play at the Tokyo Olympics two years later and I will continue to play.”
Each team can choose three players over 23 years in its Olympic team.
Honda, who spent last season with Mexican Pachuca, did not specify his next destination, although his name was linked to moving to Melbourne Victory.
Honda said he was still in negotiations with an unspecified team.
“I want to do more than be a player and negotiate with a team that knows what I want,” he said.
He continued: “I go into positive negotiations .. It is the team to which my name was associated.”
“If everything goes well, we will announce everything within days,” he concluded.
