Zidane's No. 1 comeback choice: MLS

Zinedine Zidane's admission that he is keen for a return to top-level soccer could have been a serious declaration of intent or merely the idle musings of a bored retiree.

Either way, Major League Soccer needs to find out and quickly.

Sources close to the French midfield maestro have indicated that if Zidane were to come back to soccer as a player – as opposed to a coaching, ambassadorial or administrative role – then a move to North America would be his No. 1 option.

Friends of the former FIFA World Footballer of the Year say that New York would be his preferred destination, a development the Red Bulls organization would be foolish not to pursue.
