Ronaldo Is Thinking Of China
Cristiano Ronaldo is thinking of life after Real Madrid and there are insinuations that the lucrative Chinese Super League is top on the list of his considerations as well as the United States' MLS.
According to former Brazil and Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, Ronaldo has asked about life in China more than once.
Ronaldo, 33, is still starring in Europe, having scored 37 goals in 35 games in all competitions for Madrid this season.
The Portugal international is contracted at the Santiago Bernabeu until mid-2021 but what happens after then can only best be imagined for now.
Scolari, who spent 2015-17 in China as coach of Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao, revealed Ronaldo had often asked about the country thus giving room for speculations.
"Who has asked me more than once what life is like in China is Cristiano Ronaldo. Why can't Cristiano Ronaldo go to China?" he told Esporte Interativo.
"I gave him all the instructions. And we also have to understand that China is China for different players.
"Cristiano Ronaldo has brands, an industry. And China is the largest country in the world.
"Then I told him what I always say: who receives an opportunity has to go to China.
It is yet to be seen if the Real Madrid star will end up in any of the clubs that have some sort of Nigerian representation.
