Josh Guesman is talking with LA Times Sports Writer Kevin Baxter about the Breaking News regarding Nigel De Jong.

CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy look to be dealing Nigel De Jong to Galatasaray in Turkey. The LA Time’s Kevin Baxter joins host Josh Guesman to talk about all of the updates regarding this move as well as speculate on what it could mean for the LA Galaxy.

This is not a simple move and it’s not one-hundred percent done. But it does make sense on multiple fronts. Could the LA Galaxy be dealing De Jong in an attempt to keep him from becoming a Designated Player? Are the LA Galaxy looking for flexibility? Perhaps its just a matter of De Jong looking to get back to the Dutch National team and he sees this as a way to get it done.

And in surprising fashion, the LA Galaxy actually have played better in games that Nigel De Jong has missed. But what does that mean?

Regardless of the reasons this podcast will examine the deal, examine all the details of what is known and Josh and Kevin Baxter will do their best to put this move in perspective. Does this mean the end to an unlikely MLS Cup? After all, there are only 8 games remaining in 2016.
