Nigel de Jong believes he will have a pick of “several” clubs this summer should he decide to leave AC Milan.

The Netherlands midfielder is out of contract in June and has been linked with Manchester United, Juventus and Manchester City.

De Jong worked with Louis van Gaal with Holland during the World Cup in Brazil last summer and speculation about joining up with his former boss at Old Trafford continues to surround the 30-year-old.

But he admits there are a number of clubs interested in signing him when he becomes a free agent and insists he will only decide his future when he hears Milan’s plans for the future.

“I haven’t decided yet and I don’t know when I will make that decision,” De Jong told while on international duty with Holland.

“It could be at the end of April or at the end of the season. First of all I want to figure out what Milan’s plans are to get back to being the great club of the past.

“It’s still too early to say where I’ll be playing next term. It could be Milan, Ajax or another club. There are several options, as I will be a free agent.”

Milan have endured another disappointing campaign in 2014-15 and currently sit eighth in the table, 14 points adrift of the top three.

The latest reports suggest the club are preparing to offload coach Filippo Inzaghi at the end of the season and replace him with Sevilla boss Unai Emery.

Milan have enjoyed an upturn in form in recent weeks and are priced at 2.93 to make it three wins in a row by beating Palermo in their next Serie A clash on April 4.
