Podcast: Rumor Discussion and Who’s Most Likely to Land at LA Galaxy

On today’s show, your host brings on three excellent guests to discuss rumors concerning Jonathan Dos Santos, Romain Alessandrini, and Gregor Breinburg.

CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy have just been linked to several players from several teams around the world. And in order to discuss all the aspects of each player and how likely they are to end up with the team, your host, Josh Guesman, is bringing on three excellent guests.

First Josh will be joined by ESPNFC Senior Writer, Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle). Jeff was one of the first people on the hunt for the Jonathan dos Santos rumors and he’s also the first person to link the Galaxy with French League midfielder, Romain Alessandrini. Jeff will break down what he knows and especially what the LA Galaxy are looking for while on the hunt for two new Designated Players.

Next, good friend-of-the-show and LA Times Soccer Writer, Kevin Baxter (@Kbaxter11) calls in from the road to discuss Jonathan dos Santos and what La Liga’s Villarreal want for the midfielder. And the number Villarreal is talking about is a lot of money. Kevin will tell you why he thinks another Dos Santos landing at the LA Galaxy is still far from certain, but he’ll also tell you who the LA Galaxy are close to landing and why that may be a good move. Plus Kevin will address “cost cutting” and why he thinks that’s one of the smartest things this team could do.

Finally, Steven Bank (@ProfBank) — Paul Hastings Professor of Business Law at UCLA Law School — joins the program to discuss what a buyout clause actually means to teams in Spain and why that isn’t necessarily a deal breaker. If you were feeling like there is just simply no way the Galaxy can land Jonathan Dos Santos, then Professor Bank is going to give you an education. Plus we’ll learn some fancy law terms as well.

It’s a great show full of the information you need to judge this LA Galaxy Front Office. Are they doing a good job? Is there still time for this team to get everything straight before the preseason begins?

Thanks for joining on Corner of the Galaxy. We’re glad you took the time to enjoy another show.
