The former Spain international is currently a free agent after parting company with Besiktas at the tail end of last year and is likely to move to China next despite MLS offers.Guti could have joined the Los Angeles Galaxy if David Beckham hadn't extended his stay in California, the Spaniard's agent told Goal.com.
Another MLS club could still move for the former Real Madrid maestro, the player's representative, Marco Kirdemir, added.
The former Spain international is currently a free agent, having parted company with Besiktas in November, and has been repeatedly linked with a move to Asia or the United States.
“He could have gone to the Los Angeles Galaxy if David Beckham had not renewed his contract and, in the next few days, I'm to receive an offer from the United States," Kirdemir told Goal.com. “But, currently the preferred solution is Asia. In the coming days, I will go to China to talk to some clubs.”
The 35-year-old will likely turn down offers from Turkey as well, preferring a new life experience.
"He's got an offer from Turkey,” the FIFA agent explained. “A team wanted him for eight games, but we refused that because the player wants to experience a different country. I've also been to Dubai, but the offer there did not convince us."
Despite rumors of a Serie A switch, Guti's agent insisted that he has not yet been contacted by Lazio in relation to a potential switch to the Stadio Olimpico.
"At the moment there are no offers,” the FIFA agent told Goal.com. “I have not spoken to any Lazio directors. “If an offer is submitted to us, we would evaluate it [because], certainly, Serie A is a championship of a great standard.”
Guti, who was capped 14 times by Spain in his pomp, spent 15 years at the Santiago Bernabeu before joining Besiktas in 2010.
