Is Madrid Forward Cristiano Ronaldo Joining The Orlando City SC

There is definite interest from Orlando City owner Flavio Augusto Da Silva to bring Madrid Forward Cristiano Ronoldo out of Europe to play for the Lions which would add more star power to his young Major League Soccer franchise.

“Truthfully, we like Cristiano Ronaldo a lot,” Da Silva said. “We’d sign him without thinking about it. Physically, he’s more complete than (Lionel) Messi, and he’d make more of an impact on a marketing level in MLS than the Argentine. – Orlando City SC Owner: Flavio Augusto Da Silva

Orlando City team captain Ricardo KaKa could have a hand in helping this pipe dream become reality since the two are close friends and former team mates. It’s not completely without merit. Ronaldo has been linked with an MLS move before, with future expansion side Los Angeles FC already a reported front-runner for his signature.

“Hopefully, we can sign him for this upcoming season. We’ve always heard that he’d like to come to the United States to play.”
