MLS franchise LAFC are reportedly 'obsessed' with the idea of bringing Cristiano Ronaldo to the club and are hoping to partner him with his former Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney.
The Mirror are reporting that the franchise, who will be introduced to the MLS in 2018 are already taking the necessary step to ensure Ronaldo becomes one of their three designated players.
The Los Angeles side, who will replace Chivas USA, are backed by 22 extremely wealthy individuals including the likes of NBA legend Magic Johnson and Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan.

According to an un-named source the club are obsessed with bringing the Real Madrid star, who will be 33 in 2018, to LA upon their inclusion and the Portugal captain sees the States as a perfect opportunity for expanding the CR7 brand.
With each MLS side being allowed three designated stars, the club are also confident of snapping up United captain Wayne Rooney, who will be 32 by that time.
UNITED FANS DREAM
It appears to be a farfetched dream of many Manchester United fans to see Rooney line up alongside Ronaldo once again at Old Trafford. The club were linked with a move for the three-time Ballon d'Or winner, but it always seemed highly unlikely a move would come to fruition.
The Red Devils have gone about strengthening their side this season, as they look to win back the Premier League title they surrendered two years ago.
However, most Manchester United fans would welcome back the man who scored 118 goals in 292 games for the club in a heart beat.
