The guy just hit the much hated 30, and in soccer, 30 means your time is quickly coming to an end.

That's pretty awesome man.

Which is why LA wants him.

I think he signs with the Galaxy and one of Beckham or Donovan is out. Beckham wants a permanent transfer (which is stupid, the past transfer her was on, he was a BACKUP) and Donovan is drawing massive interest from European clubs eager to purchase his contract. His contract is still in effect though, and he always transfers in the MLS offseason to play in Europe.

With the new rules, teams can have 3 designated players (effective this season), meaning the LA Galaxy could technically keep Ronaldinho, Donovan and Beckham and roll them all out if they can afford them.

MLS salary cap lets teams buy expensive players if they pay them themselves. Donovan is home grown, but his deal is unique that it is above the MLS cap and he is considered a designated player because of it.
