So you want all the rumors in one show? Lletget, Pavon, Steres, and more? Okay! But just this once!
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — To say the LA Galaxy offseason suddenly jumped into overdrive would be an understatement. With Saturday’s MLS Cup inching toward completion, all hell is about to break loose on the trading market inside the league. And that means multiple players from the Galaxy could be gone in a matter of days.
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira update you on all the rumors surrounding the Galaxy, break some news, and tell you what to expect as the club wheels and deals in a very compact offseason.
Josh and Eric will start with an update on Mike Munoz, LA Galaxy II, and a surprise departure (maybe it’s not that surprising) of a coach we thought would stay around. Are significant changes coming to the Academy?
Then the guys transition to Sebastian Lletget. They’ll talk about the rumor that was dropped by Steve Goff earlier in the day and update you on teams interested in Lletget. Is the fact that Bruce Arena is making this deal surprise anyone? And what can you expect from a Lletget who will probably have a bounce-back year for the Revolution?
Next on the rumor list is Cristian Pavon. How aggressive are the Galaxy going to get with Boca Juniors? And why will he be expensive even though he’s out of contract in June? We’ll explain the landscape and why multiple teams are after Pavon.
And are the Galaxy making a mistake by pursuing someone with sexual assault charges still on the books?
Finally, Dan Steres is on the trading block. That shouldn’t surprise you. It was assumed as a good theory as soon as the season ended. But with Vanney deciding that Steres won’t be playing for LA, the Galaxy have to find a place for the 31-year-old.
