Mardid, Spain - A source close Raul Gonzalez, the Real Madrid striker and Madrid's favorite son, suggest that Raul is considering a move to the United States.
"His wife, you know, she drives him loco" said a close friend. "She goes on and on about how she wants to go to Hollywood and become a star and is sick of babysitting."
Raul's wife, Mamen Sanz, clearly misses her glamor days as a model and yearns for the spotlight again. The fact that Raul has been dropped from the Spain national team has meant that Raul has less of a say in the decision.
"The woman cannot shut her trap! She tells him that he is no good for the national team. She wants Raul to make this sacrifice so that she can go to Hollywood", said the friend. He went on to say that while he could understand the need for footballers in the Los Angeles area, he was not understood why footballers' wives are in such great demand. "It's Los Angeles - they have bimbos of all shapes and sizes . Why would a woman want to go there?", wondered the friend.
A friend closer to Mamen however had a different perspective. "Who knows...maybe if Raul signs with LA Galaxy, the Spain coach will think he is good enough for the national team." she said.
