LA Galaxy Starting XI and Supporting Cast?
Cole and Van Damme - rumored to be in negotiation with these 2 30+ year old European players
UPDATE: Van Damme has been signed 1/26
Cole has been signed 1/27
De Jong - rumored to be in negotiation with this 30+ year old European player
UPDATE: De Jong officially signed 2/3
Larentowicz - LAG Confidential have doubts about the wisdom of this signing. I wonder if he might get some back four time in addition to being slotted in as a defensive midfielder?
Magee - experienced player for squad rotation
Boateng - Since AEG has eyes and ears in Sweden they picked up this younger player for further development
UPDATE: What do LA Galaxy fans think? The starting line-up could contain FIVE over-30 European players (Cole, Van Damme, Gerrard, De Jong, and Keane). Perhaps, they are going "all-in" to try to win an MLS Cup on the final (?) year of Gerrard and Keane with LA?
UPDATE: I wondered how the LA Galaxy could fit 3 euro-stars into their line-up! The 3DP spots are filled (Keane, Dos Santos, Gerrard). Thus, how will they fit these 3 under the salary cap? Well, some creative salary structuring according to Baxter at the LAT.
