Cristiano Ronaldo quit Real Madrid for Juventus back in the summer and has impressed in Serie A, scoring 17 times to boost their chances of another Scudetto triumph.

The 33-year-old penned a four-year deal upon arriving in Turin and, given his fine form, there seems little chance of him leaving anytime soon.

Ronaldo has, though, never hid the fact that he could yet strut his stuff in the MLS.

And football finance expert Maguire believes there is a chance the Portugal international will make the move before the end of his career.

“The first port of call would be China or the Middle East if you look at other players at that time in their career,” he told the Daily Star.

“There’s a remote chance of Ronaldo going to the MLS.

“That would be feasible because the club owners would be able to put together a package to suit his financial demands.”

Maguire believes Juventus would complicate any Ronaldo exit, however.

“Juventus have done so well,” he added.

“Their value on the stock market went shooting up when he sined.

“He’s scoring goals for fun, so they would look to get back the money they spent on him less than 12 months ago.”

Ronaldo, meanwhile, has been tipped NOT to become a manager or pundit when he hangs up his boots according to close financial advisot Rahul Mehta.

“Ronaldo is a brand,” he told Goal.

“It’s phenomenal the number of followers that he has on social media.

“He’s involved in so many things from hotels to underwear. They’ve really cornered everything.

“This is a smart footballer because he realises he has another few years at the top.

“I think he can probably play until 40 but if he gets a bad injury that might change.

“He’s doing so many things outside of football, making so much money that he’s going to be so well looked after when he retires.

“I don’t see Ronaldo being a pundit or coach so I think he’ll grow on his investments after he’s retired.

“The couple of times I’ve had dinner with him I never talk about football with him.

“The last time I saw him it was actually about charity work and he has to be commended for the amount of charity work he’s involved in.”
