Real Madrid legend Raul could be on his way out of the Spanish capital as Major League Soccer outfit New York Red Bulls are reported to be close to reaching an agreement with him.
According to a report in Marca, the MLS side have made Raul an offer comparable to what the 32-year-old attacker is earning at Real at the moment. The experienced attacker recently expressed his desire to play in America one day and a move could now be on the horizon.
Raul is finding regular first team football hard to come by under head coach Manuel Pellegrini and the high scoring forward has been warming the bench more than he'd like to.
The captain's current Real Madrid deal is due to expire in the summer of 2011, but the Blancos could be tempted to let go of him in the near future in order to reward him for his achievements for the club.
New York Red Bulls are full of ambition and are believed to be hoping to build a team containing several European superstars. Thierry Henry and Paolo Maldini are also being linked with the Americans.
