Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has ruled out a money-spinning move to another continent when he finally decides to wind down his illustrious career.
Players such as Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo have chosen to make the switch to the MLS in recent years.
Ronaldo is considered to be one of the brightest stars in world football but he insisted he wants to go out at the top.
“In my mind I want to finish in the top level,” Ronaldo said.
“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.”
The Portuguese has flirted with a move to Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks, as well as a return to Manchester United. Ronaldo has always wanted to be the best and it would be hard to see him winding down his career at a lower level. The hope for United supporters is that he chooses to come back to Old Trafford someday.
