Diego Maradona is considering offers to play for Japanese and Greek clubs in 1996. The 35-year-old midfielder who captained Argentina to victory in the 1986 World Cup, has recently returned from a second drugs ban and is contracted to play for the Argentinian club Boca Juniors until December 1997.

However, his agent, Guillermo Coppola, said: "There is a concrete and very good offer for Diego to go and play in Japan next year and also another from a club in Greece."

Maradona, who is sidelined with a stomach trouble, helped Boca to a seemingly unbeatable six-point lead in the Argentinian league by mid-November, but Boca have since crashed to consecutive defeats and lost any chance of winning the championship.
