Before Ronaldo left Juventus for United some weeks ago, right after the news broke out that he would be leaving Juventus, reports started making the rounds that he could be set for a shocking move to the United States Major League Soccer.

SEATTLE SOUNDERS DEFEAT SAN JOSE TO EXTEND UNBEATEN RUN

Major League Soccer giants Seattle Sounders recorded a slender 1-0 win over San Jose to take their unbeaten streak to 14 games in the league. Sounders have been on fire in the league this season and have been by far one of the best sides in the league so far this campaign. Although they were not at their ruthless best against San Jose, an 18th-minute strike from Cristian Roldan was enough to hand them all three points as they look to extend their meteoric rise in the league.
