Another Premier League winner could soon be on his way to Major League Soccer.
According to The Daily Mail, Queens Park Rangers midfielder Park Ji-Sung has been linked with a move to North America, as MLS looks to expand their marketing reach into the Asian market.
With QPR’s relegation confirmed, numerous players including Park have been told they can look elsewhere, as their salaries will be too high to maintain in the Championship division of English soccer. The 32-year-old South Korean international won the Premier League four times and UEFA Champions League once during a seven year span at Manchester United.
The report states that Toronto FC are leaders to sign Park, as manager Ryan Nelsen played with Park earlier this season at QPR. Rumors earlier in the year linked Park with a potential move to Vancouver to join former South Korean national team teammate Lee Young-Pyo.
U.S. Men’s National Team fans with good memories will remember Park for the goal he scored in the 2002 World Cup that helped the United States advance out of the group stages. Park scored a winner against Portugal that knocked out the Portuguese and allowed the Americans to eventually reach the quarterfinals.
What do you make of this news? Do you believe Park would be a good fit in MLS? Where would you like to see him play.
