A few weeks ago, Lionel Messi made the headlines of all the sports newspapers in the world, as the Argentinean star decided to end his career in European football to emigrate to the MLS, where he will play for Inter Miami. On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo denied rumors about a possible return to European football, to stay one more season with Al-Nassr of the Saudi Pro League.


However, there are a series of events that could lead to Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival in MLS and rekindle the rivalry between the two players who have dominated the world of the sport for almost two decades. It is rumored that a team from the U.S. league could try to convince Ronaldo to play with them in the next World Cup in 2026.

According to Mexican journalist Gerardo Vázquez de León, LAFC officials could try to make a move similar to the one made by Inter Miami to sign Messi, in order to bring CR7 to MLS. However, this would depend on the renewal of Carlos Vela, who is currently LAFC's franchise player.

According to the journalist, if Carlos Vela does not sign a contract renewal with LAFC, the first option in the minds of the directors would be to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to the city of Los Angeles to play with LAFC, offering him a large sum of money to convince him, and thus rekindle the historic rivalry with Messi, but now in MLS. For now it is all rumors and there would have to be a series of circumstances for such a scenario to be really possible, but a year ago few would have imagined that Messi would prefer to go to the United States rather than continue in Europe or even go to Saudi Arabia.


Would it be good for Cristiano Ronaldo to go to MLS?

In the context of the rumor of his possible arrival to the MLS, Cristiano Ronaldo could perhaps benefit if he really opted to play for LAFC, since the next World Cup, which will be held precisely in the United States, is only 3 years away and playing there would certainly give Cristiano Ronaldo more chances to reach that tournament.
