The growth that MLS has shown in recent years makes Conmebol doubt if it is a good idea to include the league in the Copa Libertadores. The presence of great stars of world soccer and the globalization of MLS would be one of the points in favor so that it can be achieved in the future.

There are many criticisms of some teams that play the Copa Libertadores since there is a great difference in level between the best and the worst. This made Conmebol rethink the idea that Mexico can participate in the competition. But if instead of the Mexican league the one that participates is the MLS? This idea is gaining strength within Conmebol.

Today the MLS teams are far superior to those of the Concaf, taking out the Mexican teams and the Concacaf Champions League always ends defined between teams from the United States and Mexico. Also in the plans to expand MLS into world markets, this would be a great idea.

Another alternative that is being considered is to set up a tournament in the Americas with the best teams from each country, such as the Champions League. For this to happen, Conmebol would have to partner with Concacaf and organize a single continental tournament. This would seem to be the most tempting idea that would once and for all unite soccer across America.
