Juan Sebastian Veron feels he may have to postpone a return to his native Argentina to stay at Internazionale for another season.
The midfielder was hoping to head back to South America in the summer after a decade of playing in Europe.
Recent reports have suggested that Veron will perform a U-turn, although Inter president Massimo Moratti is happy to leave a decision in the player's hands.
But while Veron remains keen to go back to Argentina at the end of the season, he admits he may have to stay at Giuseppe Meazza for a further 12 months.
"I am under contract at Inter for one more year and this club doesn't want me to leave," admitted the former Chelsea man.
"We are having conversations, they have told me to think about it.
"I want to return to Argentina, most of all because of my family, but as I respect Inter very much I have to have conversations with them.
"I've had a very good experience in European football, most of all this last time at Inter, but I must recognise that football has changed a lot since the day that I arrived in 1996.
"Now there is too much pressure, most all from the press and the supporters. There are also too many critics against the referees and all that has made this game too stressful."
Veron admits he is likely to wait until the campaign's conclusion before reaching a decision regarding his future.
He added to Sky Italia: "Now, let's think of what is expected of us in these months, then I'll talk with my family and we will see what will happen at the end of the season."
