“I think he would be a great signing for MLS - 100 per cent MSL would be attractive for him.
“Keeping in mind that is a very talented footballer, who has quality soccer ahead of him, you are not talking about a 34 or 35 year old.
“I get excited about the impact he would have in the MLS more than a guy who is coming in later in his career.
“The MLS is offering significant money. There were conversations with some guys who are as big a name as Rooney recently. “Players need to make their own choices but I think about other leagues being competitors for talent more than I do the Chinese league, where certainly there is a lot of money being splashed around."
