Before anyone Stateside gets to carried away we would imagine that any move Cristiano Ronaldo is referring to would be some years in the future, that said the mere interest shown by one of the biggest footballers on Planet Earth in a move to the MLS is a good advert for the progress the game is making in the United States.
A number of high profile players have moved to the MLS in recent seasons, Thierry Henry, Robbie Keane, Rafael Marquez and Tim Cahill to name just four who have made the move to the US.
Attendances are at an MLS high this term and with a growing TV audience to boot football, or soccer if you prefer, has a strong future.
