​Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has fuelled rumours he will one day make a switch to the MLS by seriously looking at purchasing another flat in New York, according to the ​Daily Mirror.

The 30-year-old three-time Ballon d'Or winner purchased an $18.5m flat in Trump Tower back in August from Italian real-estate magnate Alessandro Proto, but is now looking at a second flat in the same building for $23m.

The flat Ronaldo is looking at formerly belonged to controversial U.S Presidential candidate Donald Trump's parents, and is located on the 63rd floor of the Fifth Avenue building named after the Republican front-runner.

It is also significantly larger than his previous acquisition, as it covers 3700 square feet as opposed to his August transaction, which is 1200 square feet smaller. The larger flat also has a view of New York's Central Park.


Previous residents of Trump Tower include Andrew Lloyd Webber, former CONCACAF president Chuck Blazer and Hollywood A Lister Bruce Willis - while former Brazilian Football Confederation President Jose Maria Marin is under house arrest there.

Despite Ronaldo repeating several times that he wants to see out his career with Real Madrid, the fact he is looking at purchasing a second flat suggests that perhaps he is looking towards the future and a possible move to the MLS.

Previous superstar players who have made the switch to the MLS include the likes of David Beckham, Thierry Henry, Andrea Pirlo, David Villa, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard, and it remains to be seen whether Ronaldo will join that list.

Ronaldo has been in staggering form for Real Madrid this season, as always, and currenltly has 30 goals in 28 matches in all competitions for Los Blancos this season - however it seems unlikely that he will lift the league title in May.

Real are currently four points behind leaders Barcelona having played a game less, and their head-to-head is vastly inferior too as Madrid were thumped 4-0 by Barca earlier this season.
