Makes sense though, if you don't know much about the country you at least know that LA and NY are huge cities with just about any cultural walk of life being represented.

Apparently Ribery has been speaking with Lother Matthaus or Rafa Marquez. I hope he never comes to the MLS. The MLS has been working hard to break this retirement home stigma, no need for Ribery to set that back. Let him go to the UAE when his "real career" is over.


The France international has now ruled out any prospect of a future move to La Liga, Ligue 1 or any other European league, but he says he would relish the chance to play in the MLS or the Gulf once his "real career" is over.

"In Europe, there will be no other club, but it would be a bonus for me if there can be another continent after that," he said. "I could be tempted to go to a country like the U.S. or maybe the [United Arab] Emirates, but I would not count that as part of my real career.

"That would be something I would do to wind up my career and could not be compared to what I have experienced in Munich. I will stay in Munich as long as it is possible."

Ribery, who will be 34 when his current contract expires in 2017, says he is not dwelling on the matter of when that moment might come.

Yeah im getting tired of mls signing old washed up players. Many people see this league as a retirement home. I mean i get that MLS wants to get more known, hyped, and boost attendance, jersey sales, TV views ext... But at some point i think mls has to sign a player in their prime in their 20's not 30's. And is not fair that a 30 yr old plus former star is getting paid 20xs more $ than some of the younger players that are playing much better than they are.

Kind of irks me that he says he'll join when his real career is over. MLS is past that point. It's not there yet but isnt some crap league that these players think it is.

Typical comment from a Frenchman. I hate that Ribery, biggest diver and complainer there is in the game. He can play though.

And the thread lives on!

So we saw the "Xavi to Red Bulls" talk but now it looks like Man City are looking to make Xavi the "marquee signing" for NYCFC...

Kreis also saying that he's "quite confident" that he'll fill the three DP spots. Good article, lots of really positive and hopeful talk coming out of everyone.

Yes, just read that article too! I know a few Spanish Red Bull fans and this would be a great start to the rivalry.

Probably the most exciting time to be an MLS fan, so many possibilities out there...we really need to explore how we loosen the cap with the potential influx of foreign players. I would suggest some sort of percentage for US/Canada players, both capped nationally and not (maybe different percentages for the two), and foreign players also capped and uncapped for the respective countries would be counted 100% toward the cap, excepting DP players.

But that's probably another thread, one for when I don't have work to do...

Absolutely nothing concrete in the article, completely wild speculation...still, CR7 playing in almost every major soccer market in the country could grow the sport very quickly indeed.

I have no doubt in my mind Christiano Ronaldo will sign for Beckhams Miami team.

CR7 can make more money elsewhere. I just don't think they would have enough money to pay him what he could get elsewhere.

Doreadyley'd be able to get those but if not Ronaldo then I'd Ibrahimovic. He'd be 35 by then which makes it reasonable and why would he wanna play in beautiful Miami. Beckhams already said he's had many connections from players in the clubs he's played for.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
