‘Galaxy’ is the word that crosses our mind when we think of Los Angeles and football, but starting next season, David Beckham’s former club won’t be the only ‘player’ in the California megalopolis.
Los Angeles FC are joining MLS, and they are working on attracting as much attention as possible.
The club that is co-owned by famous comedian Will Ferrell, is after signing world-famous DPs (Designated Players), having knocked on Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s door as well, at least before his serious injury in that Man United Europa League game against Anderlecht.
Now, according to ESPN FC, they have not just approached, but almost agreed on a deal with Wesley Sneijder, for two years, offering the 33-year-old midfieder $3.5 million-a-year.
The Dutch is under contract at Galatasaray until the summer of 2018, but either way the MLS season doesn’t start before March, and it’s its second half when the playoff positions are really decided.
According to the same report, LAFC are determined to keep pushing for more, aiming at signing at least three players whose move to the newly-formed club will show everyone that they… mean business, and want to be successful on and off the pitch right from their inaugural season in MLS.
