With that now behind her, she is looking towards the future. Rapinoe has been largely based in her homeland throughout her career, and she currently plays for Washington-based Reign FC. However, she has also played in Australia and France, and is willing to try another move, with Spain an option.

Speaking to beINSports, as reported by AS, Rapinoe said: "I'm getting a little older, Megan Rapinoe is getting older. But I am open to all offers, of course. The idea of playing abroad is very attractive. I love to travel. I played in Lyon for a year, and I loved it, maybe at the end of my career, I will play in Spain."

When going into greater detail about which Spanish club she would choose to represent, the 34-year-old admitted that Barcelona would be her preferred choice, stating that their style of play makes them a more attractive proposition than Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

"How Barcelona plays is beautiful and inspiring; it's a joy to see them. Also, Atletico plays with such intensity that is always so much fun, and obviously, Real Madrid has great players, but Barcelona is number one in my heart," she added.
