Cahill had reportedly fielded offers from England, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and China, and it is believed David Moyes attempted to lure the 35-year-old to Real Sociedad in the past few days, according to The Daily Telegraph.

MLS club New York Red Bulls confirmed Cahill’s exit via mutual consent after the Socceroo spent three years in the USA.

“This decision was not made lightly, and it is the result of many conversations between our staff, Tim, and his agent,” NY Red Bulls Sporting Director Ali Curtis said.

“After much deliberation, we have agreed that this decision is best for all involved. We thank Tim for his service to the organization. He positively impacted the growth of the beautiful game in the United States, MLS and for the Red Bulls.

“We are pleased that Tim will continue to be an ambassador for Red Bull moving forward.”

In a live TV announcement on Fox Sports, Cahill revealed that Sydney FC had “reached out” to him two months after the World Cup, however he had “no offers” from any A-League sides.
