Man City skipper Vincent Kompany interested in MLS

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has desire to make a move to Major League Soccer once his contract expires at the Etihad in 2018.

The 29-year-old defender has revealed about his future move to the USA based club when his City contract gets over in 2018.

Having made 276 appearances for the Citizens since arriving from Bundesliga outfit Hamburg in 2008, has won two Premier League titles, FA Cup in 2011 and the League Cup last year.

The Belgium centre-back is in no rush to leave the Sky Blues at the moment but, keeping a close eye on the events during New York City FC inaugural season, admits that the league’s recent performance has left him considering a future move.

Speaking to NBCSports, the highly-rated defender said: “It has been crazy since they [Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard] have moved over because MLS is always on.”

“You get to see so much of MLS now, so it’s actually becoming quite a relevant league to people over here.”

“Obviously, we follow quite closely what New York City FC does. For us, it is quite important to be supportive towards that club as well.”

“The level is increasing every single year. You see new franchises coming in, you see so many people going to the stadiums and they are also good stadiums now. I think it is just a fun league to be in so I wouldn’t be surprised to go over there when my contract comes to an end at City.”
