Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo playing in Major League Soccer seems unrealistic, right? Well, it may not be such a crazy thought after all.
Ronaldo reportedly told Orlando City captain Nani that he will “probably” end up playing in MLS before he retires, according to ESPN.
“A couple of years ago, he told me that he will probably end up in America,” Nani told ESPN. “It’s not 100 percent, but probably. There is a chance.”
Nani has been teammates with Ronaldo at both the club and international level, having shared the flanks while playing for Premier League side Manchester United and international side Portugal. So, it’s fair to say that the two know each other very well.
If Ronaldo decides to play in MLS, it’ll likely be towards the end of his career. The forward would be following in the footsteps of players like David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thierry Henry and David Villa in winding down his career in America. At age 35, that time may be coming very soon.
