Former Manchester United left-back Gabriel Heinze set for an Indian adventure

The former Argentina international is reportedly set for a money-spinning stint in the Indian Super League.

According to a report from TuttoMercatoWeb, 37-year-old Gabriel Heinze is amongst a number of stars in the twilight of their careers, who could participate in the second season of the Indian Super League.

Capped 72 times with Argentina, Heinze is believed to be in talks with Delhi Dynamos, who finished the inaugural 2014 season in fifth position, and have a working partnership with Dutch club, Feyenoord.

Heinz started his career with Newell's Old Boys, then gained his first experience in European football with Real Valladolid, which also included a brief loan spell with Sporting in Portugal.

From there he rose to prominence with Paris Saint Germain and eventually caught the eye of Manchester United. Although he was initially very popular with fans, winning the 2004-05 Sir Mat Busby Player of the Year award, Heinze would later lose their respect.

Following a bust-up with Sir Alex Ferguson over a lack of games, he demanded a transfer to arch-rivals Liverpool, who according to The Telegraph at the time, had made a formal approach. Needless to say, a move to Anfield was flatly rejected by the Red Devils.

Heinze eventually departed for Real Madrid in 2007, winning La Liga in his first season, but after they failed to win any major honours the following season, the left-back was again on the move.

A second spell in France followed for Heinze, this time with Marseille, helping them win Ligue 1 and the Coupe de la Ligue twice. With his career in decline though, his final season in Europe was spent with Roma in Italy, before completing a cycle by returning to his roots, back in Argentina with Newell's Old Boys.

Having celebrated his 37th birthday on 19th April, moving to the Indian Super League would present Heinze with a good opportunity. Certainly for one last big pay-day, where he'd participate in a season which lasts just three months.
