Roma defender Juan has admitted that he would like to finish his playing career with Flamengo.
The Brazil international has decided to go public with his desire to return to his homeland, but insists he has no desire to complete the switch until after the 2010 World Cup.
The 29-year-old began his career with Rio de Janeiro-based Flamengo in 1996 before securing a move to Europe, and Bayer Leverkusen, in 2002.
Five successful years in Germany were then followed by a transfer to Rome, where he has become an integral figure for the Giallorossi.
"I expect to get to the end of my contract with Roma as I have been looked after very well since arriving in Italy," Juan told SporTV.
"I want to stay at Roma for now and then after the 2010 World Cup I will make a decision on my future.
"I have a dream to wear the Flamengo shirt again, mainly because I now have a son and I want him to become a Flamengo supporter like me.
"Despite living and working in Europe I always keep up to date with what is happening at Flamengo."
