According to reports from Europe, U.S. national team star and Los Angeles Galaxy striker Landon Donovan is close to heading to France this winter.
According to the French soccer website 10sport, Donovan is on the verge of a move to Paris St. Germain after the current MLS season. Reports suggest that an official announcement is coming shortly. Whether the move will be a loan or a transfer remains unclear, though one source tells SBI it could be either at this point as negotiations are still on-going.
The proposed move would mark the second straight winter Donovan has spent in Europe after being loaned out to Bayern Munich last January. Donovan would join fellow U.S. national team players Carlos Bocanegra and Charlie Davies in Ligue 1.
Paris St. Germain finished in sixth place in Ligue 1 last season, one spot away from Europa League qualification.
What do you think of Donovan heading to France? Think it's a good fit for him? Disappointed that he's not heading to somewhere like Spain or England? Think another loan makes sense considering the World Cup is next summer?
