LA Galaxy

Podcast: Galaxy keeping their eyes open on Pavon and others during uncertain MLS start

Cristian Pavon isn’t the only target the LA Galaxy have in the preseason. Could they walk away from the Argentine? Absolutely!

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Major League Soccer has a perception problem. And with the owners out in the public eye, they’re issuing ultimatums that aren’t going to be looked at too kindly by players or fans. 

On today’s podcast, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss all the latest news surrounding your LA Galaxy, and discuss what MLS’s threat of a lockout could mean for the season’s start. 

But first, the guys want to dive into some pressing topics. That includes looking at some fake rumors surrounding Cristian Pavon and why the Galaxy may have decided to offer $6-million for the Argentine who might need ankle surgery. Did Boca overplay their hand here?

Then the guys discuss where the Galaxy are at in terms of new signings and why Galaxy sources are playing the patience game. Do they need to sign Pavon? Are they actually interested in Sebastian Giovinco? And do they have their eye on a Central Attacking Midfielder?

Then it’s a deep dive into the arguments MLS is making while MLSPA is preparing for a work stoppage. Could it all grind to a halt on Thursday night? The answer is that it absolutely could. So what are the players fighting to win?

Finally, the guys want to talk about the mass exodus happening on the loan front and why some MLS teams are taking away the uncertainty and loaning out players, while the players look to guarantee a paycheck for the next couple of months. Plus, there’s some talk about Jonathan dos Santos and why he could be a breakout player in 2021 while also being a significant piece for the Galaxy to sell. 

Are you ready to talk some Galaxy with us today?
