In Saudi Arabia for only six months, Cristiano Ronaldo finds himself at the center of a surprising transfer rumor.
Arrived last January at Al Nassr, after his sensational departure from Manchester United, will Cristiano Ronaldo already leave Saudi Arabia? Officially, the Portuguese striker (38) feels good in his new life on the side of Riyadh. “I am happy here, I want to continue here and I will continue herehe recently confided, already planning on the sequel. Next year I am very optimistic and confident that things will change and we will be fine, so we have to believe in it and work. »
In recent weeks, several rumors have yet announced the departure. But if a return to Europe has been mentioned, it is a club across the Atlantic that would look into his case. According to Gerardo Velázquez de León, journalist for TV Azteca, Los Angeles FC would consider recruiting “CR7”, but only as a plan B! The priority of the MLS franchise would be to extend its star player, Carlos Vela. In the event of failure, the Californian leaders could turn to the fivefold Ballon d’Or.
Cristiano Ronaldo is not the only superstar coveted by Major League Soccer, the North American championship. Lionel Messi, out of contract at PSG, would also be courted in the United States, David Beckham wishing to attract him to Miami. But the chances of seeing the two former La Liga rivals land at the same time with Uncle Sam seem slim, “La Pulga” being closer to a return to Barça or a departure for Saudi Arabia, where he would then find his former opponent Real Madrid.
