8 Of The Biggest Names Who Could End Up In China Or The United States
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's decision to join LA Galaxy has got many wondering who the next set of stars to leave Europe's shores to finish their careers elsewhere will be. Here are eight big names, including one African, who could end up playing in the US or China in the coming months.
Click through the gallery above to see eight stars who could end up playing in the Chinese Super League or Major League Soccer next season.
According to Tuttosport, Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic could move to China in the coming months, having already had an offer in January. The 31-year-old has dropped down the pecking order at the Bianconeri, which could be his main reason for wanting to leave the club.
Atletico Madrid forward Fernando Torres revealed on Monday that he will leave his boyhood club for the second time at the end of the season. The 34-year-old has had limited chances to play this season, and with his contract expiring, BBC Football reckons that he could be heading over to the MLS to play alongside David Villa, who plays for New York City FC.
It seems there is going to be a changing of the guard at Bayern Munich come the end of this season. The club will see Jupp Heynckes leave his role as head coach, and may also see the end of the Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben's time at the Allianz Arena. Both players are in the last six months of their deals, and it seems unlikely they will be offered new contracts. German media believe both players may head over to the MLS, but they could have a few Chinese sides after them too.
Others who are also linked with either Chinese Super League or MLS moves, according to various reports, are Yaya Toure, Bernard, Andre-Pierre Gignac and Giorgio Chiellini.
