Raul to Red Bull?

Multiple reports have surfaced today linking Spanish superstar Raul to a move to Red Bull New York some time this summer.

How likely is this to happen?

Well, the striker, who is 32, is finding playing time harder and harder to come by at the Bernabeu, but he is under contract at Real until 2011.

Raul also has, in the past, spoken of a desire to end his career in the U.S., but his agent, Gines Carvajal, says the player is currently “very happy in Madrid,” with teammate Marcelo adding, “I can’t picture Raul wearing any shirt that isn’t that of Real Madrid,” where he is the all-time leading scorer.

Reports out of Spain are claiming that Red Bull brass will travel to Madrid to try to persuade Raul to sign with RBNY, which does have the cash to pay the player in the manner to which he is accustomed.

Could he be enticed to New York after La Liga’s season ends, to be partnered with Juan Pablo Angel up top in the Red Bulls lineup? (Easy RBNY fans, easy.)

We’d put the chances at 25% right now.
