Frank Lampard made his MLS debut last summer, joining the American league after a long career in the Barclays Premier League. It followed the same path many aging European stars have followed, and now Lampard wants two of the biggest to consider the move. The midfielder tells CNN he thinks it's "a real possibility" the duo could come stateside.
"I think they'll want to, and I think they'll be embraced if they came here," Lampard said. "Cristiano, particularly, I could see playing in America. I think the lifestyle would suit him -- he's a showman and a great player."
So go ahead and start dreaming, Atlanta United fans. Either one of these players would make for a pretty nice Designated Player signing.
Manchester United advanced in the FA Cup at the expense of a League One club. Next up is a date with West Ham in March.
What's happening in The A?
The unstoppable Golden State Warriors left Philips Arena with a 102-92 win over the Hawks Monday night. Atlanta showed plenty of fight, coming back from a 23-point third-quarter deficit to take a four-point lead early in the fourth. But in the end, Mike Budenholzer's team ran out of gas.
Well, look who's back. This move is reminiscent of a conversation Nick Carraway had with Jay Gatsby.
