US Women’s national team star, Megan Rapinoe would be open to a move abroad to play football and Barcelona is her first choice.
Rapinoe made her name for herself, both on and off the pitch this summer, for the goals she scored and her feud with US President Donald Trump.
In an interview with beIN Sports Network, she talks of a possible move and the idea of plying her trade abroad is something she is giving some serious thought too.
“I’m getting a little older, Megan Rapinoe is getting older.”
“But I am open to all offers, of course. The idea of playing abroad is very attractive. I love to travel.”
Playing abroad is not new to Rapinoe, she has played in Europe before with Lyon. However, she has an acute affection for Spain.
I played in Lyon for a year, and I loved it, maybe at the end of my career, I will play in Spain.”
The 2019 Women’s World Cup golden ball winner, would no doubt have her pick of suitors should she officially out herself in the transfer window.
“How Barcelona plays is beautiful and inspiring; it’s a joy to see them.”
“Also, Atletico plays with such intensity that is always so much fun, and obviously, Real Madrid has great players.”
“But Barcelona is number one in my heart.”
Her national team captain Charlyn Corral already plays in the Spanish Women’s league for Atletico Madrid.
Rapinoe admires her captain, and would certainly relish the chance to follow in her footsteps.
“I just want to say she’s incredible.”
“You know being in a great club like Atlético is amazing, so keep fighting, keep doing your thing, believe in yourself and bring that League home.”
