Major League Soccer (MLS) is growing with an unknown speed at the moment. With more clubs coming into the league, and with more money in and around club, expectations and hope also grow in each club. With players such as Andrea Pirlo and Steven Gerrard in MLS, it seems that only the sky is the limit for football in the USA - or soccer as it's known there.
In 2018, both Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney could be playing at a new MLS-club. At least that is the dream for newly born Los Angeles Football Club. Right now, Los Angeles Football Club isn't a part of the current MLS, but will be in 2018.
It's the Daily Mirror who on Wednesday reported that the MLS-club got huge ambitions and expectations. It seems like a big task economically, but when you look behind the scenes of the club, you see 22 immensely wealthy people.

Sources from the club presumably have told the Daily Mirror that Cristiano Ronaldo is obsessed with the club, the clubs idea, and the wealthy people who founded the club.
"It's an obsession the club has to bring Cristiano Ronaldo here. At that moment (In 2018) the league will be much stronger. He will be a franchise player for them and they are in a belief that they could sell him 'the American dream" - a source close to the MLS reports.
After they have landed the Portuguese star, they will then go for Wayne Rooney and try to bring him to Los Angeles.
This summer the MLS have been growing immensely, and with the addition of Orlando City and New York City FC, they've been able to bring in big names. There are now many players in the league to be familiar with such as Pirlo, David Villa, Lampard, Drogba, Kaká, Giovani dos Santos and former England international Shaun Wright-Phillips.
