Keane, who scored 67 goals in 143 appearances for Ireland, has said that he would love to play alongside Ronaldo and hopes that when the strikes finally leaves Real Madrid he will join him at the MLS club.
“I think it’s probably a natural progression for him,” Keane told TMZ Sports on Monday.
“Hopefully, not for another couple of years. I’ve still got a couple of years left in me to play,” Keane said of a possible move.
“I’ll be still playing. It’d be great if we could play together.”
Ronaldo, who is currently 31, has shown no signs of letting up and led his team to a second place finish in La Liga and to the final of the UEFA Champions League. The Real Madrid striker has indicated in the past that he would like a move towards United States. If Ronaldo does make a move in this direction he would follow the likes of David Beckham and Steven Gerrard who did the same towards the end of their careers.
Ronaldo’s Real Madrid face Atletico Madrid in the final of the UEFA Champions League on the 28th of May which is perhaps their biggest match of the season as they would go trophy less if they don;t manage a win at Milan.
