Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo: I could play in MLS in the future

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik and Stuart Holden discuss the implications should Cristiano Ronaldo join the MLS once his contract runs out with Real Madrid.

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.
