Manchester City winger, Raheem Sterling has revealed that he is open for a move to the Major Soccer League (MLS) once he leaves the Blue half of Manchester.
Sterling scored 26 goals as he helped City to a historic domestic treble this season, and flew to New York after celebrating the campaign's achievements in an open top parade in Manchester on Monday. Sterling had an interview with the Wall Street Journal on a number of subjects including stricter punishments to combat racial abuse from the stands.
The England international revealed that he would prefer a move to the MLS after leaving City, "English football has grown massively over here. It wasn’t like that in the past and it’ll continue to get bigger. I was surprised walking out of the hotel today and being recognized by one or two people. I didn’t expect that over here. This is a country I would one day love to be able to come to.
"Your weather is a lot better over here than ours is. Hopefully one day I can bring my family over here. There’s always games on our tele at the training ground, we’re either watching this or the Australian League. For sure, this [MLS] is growing in the UK, and people are really taking it in and want to come over. [I] hopefully want to have a career here as well."
