'Cristiano Ronaldo Has Asked Me About China'
A manager in the Chinese Super League has claimed that Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo has asked him about China, fuelling rumours the superstar could take his career to the Asian continent.
Former Brazil and Portugal boss Luiz Felipe Scolari, now manager of Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao in China, believes Ronaldo could be perfect for the country's top flight.
Scolari has claimed that the 33-year-old forward has asked him about the country on a few occasions, suggesting that the player might just consider a move to Asia as he gets deeper into his thirties.
"Who has asked me more than once what life is like in China is Cristiano Ronaldo. Why can't Cristiano Ronaldo go to China?" the tactician told Esporte Interativo.
"I gave him all the instructions. And we also have to understand that China is China for different players.
"Cristiano Ronaldo has brands, an industry. And China is the largest country in the world.
"Then I told him what I always say: who receives an opportunity has to go to China."
Ronaldo has been linked with a move to the Chinese Super League before, although he apparently feels he still has a lot to offer in Europe's strongest competitions.
The Portuguese has scored 37 goals and assisted a further six strikes in 35 games for Real so far this season.
