Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo: I could play in MLS in the future
Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo says he is open to a move to MLS in the future, in an interview in GQ magazine.
Ronaldo, 30, has previously ruled out a move to America, telling the Jonathan Ross show in November: "In my mind I want to finish in the top level, I want to finish with dignity so in a good club. It doesn't mean that to go USA or Qatar or Dubai is not good but I don't see myself [going there]."

However, while the Portugal star has been linked with a return to England, as well as French champions PSG, he believes he could ply his trade in MLS in the future.
"Maybe in the future will be a good chance for me to play there [in America]," the Portuguese forward reveals in quotes reported by AS.
"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... I think that this is maybe going to be possible."
Ronaldo joined Madrid for a world-record transfer fee of £80 million in 2009 from United, and his future has been the subject of almost daily speculation in recent weeks.
He signed a new contract in 2013 and has previously stated that he would be happy to end his career at Madrid.
