Former Manchester United winger Nani believes his ex-club and international teammate Cristiano Ronaldo will make the move to the MLS before he retires.
Ronaldo has been at Juventus since 2018, helping his team win the Serie A title last season, but at the age of 35 he may soon set his sights on one more big move before the end of his career.
Most recently he linked with a move to link up with David Beckham at his new franchise Inter Miami.
Speaking to ESPN, Nani- who played with Ronaldo at United between 2007-2009 – revealed that Ronaldo once told him he fancied a spell in the States before he finally hangs up his boots.
“A couple of years ago, he told me that he will probably end up in America,” Nani said. “It’s not 100% but probably. There is a chance.”
Nani himself currently plays for Orlando City, and says people underestimate the quality of the MLS.
“It is a great league,” he added. “Obviously there are points where we must improve as a league, even in the quality of the players.
“Here you have fantastic clubs, well organised with fantastic conditions, great coaches, great players. You see every season improving.
“I think we all have the conditions in this league. We are in a great country. Everything is around us. It is all about being better, not being afraid to improve.”
Ronaldo recently missed a penalty on his return to action as Juventus scraped past AC Milan on away goals to make it to the final of the Copa Italia.
Juve are next up against Bologna on Monday as Serie A resumes, with Ronaldo’s side just a point clear of second place Lazio at the top of the table with 12 matches left to play.
