Man United-linked star considering shock MLS move

Manchester United look to have been dealt a blow in their chase to re-sign Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 30-year-old forward has been heavily linked with the Red Devils, as well as Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, amid speculation that he’s considering a Bernabeu exit.

He recently told GQ Magazine (via Sky Sports) that he could make a move to the MLS given its rapid rise, as the competition has already attracted a number of high profile players.

“What’s happening there is great, it’s fantastic,” he said.

“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.”

However, recently appointed manager Zinedine Zidane has ruled out his potential sale, as the club legend still considers the former United star a vital member of his squad.

Ronaldo has enjoyed an extremely fruitful spell in Spain since his arrival back in back 2009, scoring 340 goals in 326 appearances for the team so far.

The Portuguese international recently missed out in the Ballon d’Or award to Barcelona star Lionel Messi and has already featured in 20 league games time term, scoring 16 goals.
