Football News

Cristiano Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid is a story that simply will not go away. First, he is not happy; then he is. Then, the fans want him sold; then they don't. Now, the hearsay is that club president Florentino Perez wants him gone by the start of next season.

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. However, despite the prospect of a transfer ban, it seems inevitable that the 30-year-old will soon leave for a new challenge.

With speculation ramping up, the Portuguese would have known exactly the repercussions of his answer to a recent question about his future.

A journalist asked him if he would ever consider treading the same path as David Beckham, Thierry Henry and Steven Gerrard by moving to the MLS.

He admitted he was interested.

Fantastic league

The Portuguese forward told GQ Magazine: "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. I know that many players move there. I think it's becoming better and better.

"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."

In demand

With Ronaldo turning 31 next month, he is entering the twilight of an illustrious career, but he has shown this season that he still has what it takes to play at the very highest level.

He scored 11 goals in the Champions League group stage – a new record – and also has a further 16 in La Liga. As a result, should he decide to leave Real Madrid next summer, PSG and even Manchester United will have something to say before any MLS club gets close to his signature.

Looks like Real Salt Lake & Co. will have to wait a while yet.
