Real Madrid star Raul has again been linked with a move to Major League Soccer.

Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo reports that the former Spain international will head to the USA following the 2009/10 European season as Real Madrid are keen to move him on before the final year of his contract has to be paid out which is believed to be worth $10.3million.

The 32-year old has previously expressed interest in coming to MLS, saying: "As an experience, not just for me but also for my family, I could try to play a year probably in the United States.”

Recent murmurings from Spain say that the all-time leading goalscorer for both club and country could be in the States a year earlier than first thought.

This news will surely be of interest to many of the MLS clubs, especially expansion franchise Philadelphia union who could use a European star to help boost crowd numbers in their first season.
