​​Manchester City star winger Raheem Sterling has admitted that he would like to move to the USA to play in the Major League Soccer (MLS) after his time in England. 


The 24-year-old has been the Sky Blues' main man, scoring 17 goals and helping them retain the ​Premier League title, the first team to do so in the last 10 years. In addition to the league, he has also helped secure the Community Shield, Carabao Cup and the FA Cup, becoming the first team in history to accomplish the "​domestic treble".


Individually, he was named the FWA Player of the Year and PFA Young Player of the Year, while he was included in the PFA Team of the Season. With another four years remaining on his contract, there is no danger of the 24-year-old leaving the Etihad any time soon.


He though did suggest he might like to cross over to America later in his career, with the idea of New York City FC - a MLS franchise owned by Manchester City’s City Football Group - a possibility.


“English football has grown massively over here,” he told the Wall Street Journal, according to ​Express



“It wasn’t like that in the past and it’ll continue to get bigger. I was surprised walking out of the hotel today and being recognised by one or two people. I didn’t expect that over here. This is a country I would one day love to be able to come to. Your weather is a lot better over here than ours is. Hopefully one day I can bring my family over here.”




"There’s always games on our tele at the training ground, we’re either watching this or the Australian League,” he continued.


“For sure, this [MLS] is growing in the UK, and people are really taking it in and want to come over. [I] hopefully want to have a career here as well.”
