Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that he is open to playing in America’s Major League Soccer (MLS).
In an interview with GQ magazine on Tuesday, the three-time world player of the year said despite not following the MLS too closely, he does not rule out a move to the United States.
The 30-year old Portuguese said: “What’s happening there is great, it’s fantastic — 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.”
The MLS has enticed an increasing number of big-name players to America in recent years, with the likes of David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, David Villa, Thierry Henry and Kaka all plying their trade in the States.
“I know that many players move there. I think it’s becoming better and better”, the Portuguese added.
“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, soccer grows there.”
But despite the rumours, Ronaldo is still wearing the famous white shirt and is continuing to score goals at a frightening rate in both La Liga and the Champions League.
