Alessandro Nesta Determined To Sign New Milan Deal

Milan defender Alessandro Nesta admits he is waiting for the club to roll out a new deal...
Alessandro Nesta has told Milan to speed up talks over a new deal, as he is desperate to remain in Lombardy.

The 34-year-old stopper's current terms expire in June 2011, but Milan have been firm in not pushing out easy renewals. Their plans to offer players new contracts have been pushed back to March.

In any case, Nesta has made it clear he wants to remain at San Siro amid reports Lazio were keen to take him back.

"My future? It doesn't depend on me. I want to stay and carry on moving forwards," he told Il Corriere dello Sport.

"I will decide in March and I will see how I am then. The renewal? The club is waiting with everyone and they have a precise strategy in place.

"But I want to be there and play in next season's Champions League."

Milan have been enjoying a stellar campaign thus far, and it's one Nesta hopes continues.

"We can go far, no doubt about it," he said.
