Rafa Marquez hints at La Liga return

New York Red Bulls defender Rafael Marquez admits that he could return to Spanish La Liga when his spell in the MLS comes to an end.

The Mexican international left Barcelona for New York Red Bulls in August 2010, after spending seven years at Camp Nou.

However, after spending just a season and a half in the Major Soccer League, the 33-year-old reveals that a return to Spanish La Liga is a realistic possibility.

“The doors are open to return, especially at Barcelona,” Marquez told Catalan daily Sport.

The Mexican signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the MLS outfit in the summer of 2010, meaning that he is tied to New York Red Bulls until December 2013.

Nevertheless, the player, who is set to miss the start of the MLS season through suspension, is still not prepared to call time on his career in Europe, with a number of Spanish sides set to be alerted by his latest comments.

Marquez featured in 21 MLS games last season, but failed to score a single goal in the process.
