According to Sport.es the Los Angeles Galaxy are interested in finding a replacement for David Beckham if he does what is expected and leaves the team for AC Milan. The Galaxy in their quest to have a high profile player on their roster to attract fan support are looking at both FC Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez and forward Thierry Henry.
With the recent signing of Dmytro Chygrynskiy from Shakhtar Donetsk and the rising talent of Gerard Pique, the playing time for Rafael Marquez has began to dwindle. Eric Abidal has become a staple in the backfield along with of course Captain Puyol. The 30 year old Mexican international desires a starting position and may find the MLS would be his best chance at being in the spotlight.
Marquez has not seen any playing time this season after suffering an injury in Barcelona’s preseason tour of the United States.
Along with Marquez the other player who has been rumored now with not only a move to the MLS but possibly a move back to England is Thierry Henry. Henry, since arriving in Barcelona has been the talk of transfer rumors simply because the young talent upfront for FC Barcelona is so deep. Young Bojan Krkic and Pedro Rodriguez look to be battling out this year for the starting position alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lionel Messi.
Both Bojan and Pedro have showed much promise early this season and with Henry having injury issues over the past few seasons it remains to be seen if manager Pep Guardiola will continually start Henry. For Henry he is entering the twilight of his career and with a move to the US he stands to receive a sizable payday that he would most likely be unable to receive playing in Europe.
Barcaloco are usually on point with their rumors, and wouldn't post unless it was something major.
I'm half and half on this...
I wouldn't mind having Rafa and Titi in LA permanently!
