Rumours about a potential move by Cristiano Ronaldo have been aplenty, but now the Real superstar has revealed that a move to the MLS could be an option, according to Sky Sports.
Ronaldo spoke to the GQ magazine for their February issue, stating that a move to the United States at some point would be an interesting prospect.
“What’s happening there is great, it’s fantastic”, said Ronaldo. “Maybe in the future will be a good chance for me to play there. You never know, but it’s something interesting.
“I consider it, of course, because, as I’ve said, soccer there has become better and better, so why not? I think that this is maybe going to be possible. “I know that many players move there. I think it’s becoming better and better.
“It’s growing, I think it’s good. It’s good for me and young players that maybe one day we want to move there. So it’s good that football grows there.”
The Portuguese star forward has been rumoured to leave Real Madrid, with Manchester United and PSG as two possible destinations. However, new Real boss Zinedine Zidane has come out to say Ronaldo is not for sale.
Still, this isn’t the first time the 30-year-old has spoken about considering a move to the MLS. A growing number of star names have made the transition, following in the footsteps of David Beckham.
England’s great Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard are active in the US right now, joining the likes of David Villa and Ricardo Kaka, with Ashley Cole ready to make the step and Zlatan Ibrahimovic said to be very interested.
Ronaldo could be the next star crossing the Atlantic, but for now it appaers he’ll stay at Real, where he has scored a total of 340 goals in 326 appearences.
