Salas could play for Chile in Sydney
"He's thinking about it, but it's not certain. A decision is likely in the coming days," Felice Pulic told Reuters.
Pulic said the decision depended on how much time Salas would be left to train for the new season -- which has a delayed start in Italy of October 1 -- if he played for the Olympic side as one of the permitted over-age players.
The Olympic final will be played in Syndey on September 30 and although the tournament is primarily for Under-23 players, each squad is allowed to include three over-age players. Salas is 26 on Christmas Eve.
On Monday, Salas played a key role in Chile's 3-0 humiliation of Brazil, scoring once and creating the other two goals in their South American World Cup qualifier.
