Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has hinted that he could be tempted by a move to the MLS before he retires from football.
“They are both growing, though with different models,” the Spain international said in an interview with La Liga sponsors Pelayo.
“I read that the MLS is the seventh best-attended league in the world, after the five big ones and a sixth one. The fans are hooked on soccer more and more in the United States. I don’t think I’d go to China, but we’ll see about the United States.
“I always said that I would like to retire at Barca, but it would be an attractive option in a few years, as long as I still crave playing soccer.”
It’s not the first time Pique has suggested the United States as a potential post-Barca destination.
During a question-and-answer session on Twitter earlier this year, he mentioned America when asked if he could see himself playing Colombia, where his partner, the singer Shakira, is from.
“We will see what happens in the future. I would like to try another league when I’m about to retire,” he said.
