Cristiano Ronaldo could retire to MLS says agent

Football News

Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent has hinted that the Portuguese goal machine could retire to the MLS in his twilight years – just like Steven Gerrard is planning on doing.

Speaking to Telefoot, as relayed by ESPN, Jorge Mendes said that: “He will finish his career at Real Madrid, and after that, perhaps he will go to the United States. Only God knows what will happen.”

The suggestion comes in the wake of vehement claims that the 29-year-old will finish his playing career with Real Madrid.

PSG out of the question

But Mendes’ recent comments served more to disregard reports that Ronaldo would consider a move to financial giants and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

"There is no way he will sign for Paris Saint-Germain, that's impossible - including for Cristiano, someone for whom anything is possible."

The future

It is possible then, that Ronaldo may consider a coaching role stateside with the league expected to grow to 24 teams within the next decade.

And with the amount of money generated by sport in America it could be one of the few countries able to afford him.
